so even with a V8 in there, it would only be worth about the price of a V6 because of the title? and would the insurance company still charge me for insurance on a V6 or a V8?

2006 GT Engine swap

If the VIN says it a V6 it's value is based on a V6. Mods don't add value 99% of the time. Sorry, just the way it works.


Every day is a joyride.

Sorry brain fart.
I'm not liking this situation. I'd pass.
Give Delk performance a call tomorrow. See what they want for a 3V. Personally, I'd do that.

Every day is a joyride.

The engine bay pics look like they are from another car, it's a lighter blue compared to the exterior of the car

I'll be giving them a call later today about a part for my transmission. They have a good variety of parts and are priced reasonably.

I'm about to call now, but I guess it won't matter how reasonable they are with the prices of the guy selling the car won't come down on the price...

Gave Delk Performance a call and they had absolutely zero complete 3v engines. Guess it's a sign that I should keep looking. ( was hoping to buy a manual anyways ;P )
