Yes you can do the swap, It would be kind of costly. The most expensive things are the engine and tranny. Basically you'll need the mount setup in your car, as well as the entire swap for the 3.0. You'll require the ECU harness, engine all accessories, transmission with the shift linkage and shifter. Thats the basis of a swap. You'll need the axles too, and may need the hub assembly. It is kind of expensive. But if you decide that you might like to do this, i could probably source some parts for you, and you'ld have to find a shop to do this for you. What kind of a time frame would you be looking at doing this.

why would you want to do that? Im assuming it's for more power so then why dont you just get a turbo kit? It will cost less and you get more power and more fun to tune etc.

First of all, it's an Inline 4, not a "V4"
Secondly, the V6 never came with a 6 speed - it came with an automatic or a 5 speed manual.
Finally, you'd be better off just selling your car and buying a similarly used V6 manual. It'll be a lot cheaper and a lot less hassle.

Not to mention a 4 cylinder 6 i is not meant for the front end weight of the 6 cylinder motor. Would have to change more than its worth. Turbo or trade in for a lower end / model car.
