Crate motor swap

I have a 2000 v6 new edge. I was wondering if there was any crate motor with serious power that I can put up in there? They have some on Americanmuscle.com

Hey bro, if youre serious about this check out latemodelrestoration.com. they have anything from budget blocks to all out racing motors. It really comes down to how much you wanna spend. With serious power, the tranny, rear end, and suspension need to be replaced. The wiring will definately need to be replaced. A 5.0 pushrod motor or a modular 4.6 would both basically drop right in.

If you plan on getting it inspected go with the v8s built for 96 and up. Gearhead engines have great rebuilt ones with a 3 year unlimited mile warranty. Look for a cobra motor.

How much do you want to spend?
How much horsepower do you want?
What type of engine would you prefer?

For a "year appropriate" swap you can do the 4.6, 5.0 or 5.4 modular engines, but they are usually more expensive.
If you want a pushrod engine, I would stay with a small block 302 or 351W, so you don't overload the front end and end up with an ill handling vehicle.
The 351W can be bored and stroked to produce up to 427 cubic inches, which I have seen built to produce 600+ streetable horsepower.

I'd do a 5.4. It's a torque monster. But if you get the right intake you should be able to fit it under the stock hood.
