New 96 v6

I'm getting a 96 v6 to replace my 96 gt due to frame subframe damage, are there any parts from the gt I can switch over to the v6?

Heres some photos of the GT, I got it for 1800$. Great starter car but with the frame dmg I don't want to put any more into it. No mods I know off except flowmaster exhaust.

Will the exhaust switch over easily? Not to familiar with the two engines.

a shop will have to modify it but yes...the h pipe, flow tubes, mufflers, and tail pipes will all swap over.

take what you need then part out the rest...i think the hood is ugly, but maybe you can sell it and make some v6 mod money....just my opinion not to swap it over wit hthe other stuff

My plan was switch over what I can, then pull the engine and scrap the body.

Will do, I'm replacing the busted head gasket first to get the engine running first, what early mods should I go for? Nothing to fancy, I'm still new to this stuff.

Destroy that hood! Kill it with fire!

But I also say part out the car get what you need and sell the rest. Like rims and trunk and what not, should be easy to sell on Craigslist. Easy cash. Except the hood. That things scary

Just to throw it out there the hood came with the car, it's a piece of junk fiberglass add on I keep it so my engine doesn't get wet. I'm pretty much taking everything I'll need for a v8 conversion down the road out of it.

I'll be interested in knowing how it works for you. That's what I wanted to do but time is a factor for me.
