There is going to be a lot more work swapping a 3V engine into your 2V car than just the engine. You will need to swap the entire PCM and wiring harness from the 3V. You will even need to swap the accelerator pedal assembly from the 3V.

I just was trying to look around because i know my engine has a lot of miles and if something were to happen, i would have a back up engine.

Don't get me wrong. The swap can be done, but it is more than just "plug and play". It seems that a Coyote swap is the way to go, nowadays, if you want to go through the trouble of a swap.

There are still a lot of low mileage 2V engines out there.
