    Default 3.2 V6 replacement engine for 2.0 DTI Signum

    Is it possible to do a straight swap, replacing my 2.0 DTi engine with a 3.2 V6 petrol engine? I am bored with the sluggishness of the 2.0 DTI. If not, can I uprate the turbo for some extra BHP?

    Thanks, Luc

    would be cheaper and easier to buy a GSi or V6 Elite.

    I may be wrong but you would need to replace the engine/gearbox/wiring loom/fuel tank and pump/ancillaries/driveshafts.
    The only way that would work out was if you had a complete written off car.

    can't answer that directly, but the V6's are going really cheap at the mo.
    You may get a better PX deal and cash against a V6
