anyone know anything about the 4.0?

so, the dodge nitro uses a new 4.0 single overhead cam, 24 valve v6. from what ive heard, its is a redesign of the 3.5 high output. so, i was curious, if the differences between it and the 3.5 are not to major. such as the 3.2 vs 3.5, would it be theoretically possible to drop a 4.0 in an intrepid. id imagine it would require some more modification than the normal 2.7-3.5 swap. but? could it be done?

There's someone who's going to start on a Nitro 4.0 swap very soon, the Pacifica 4.0 swap didn't work out well.

Dont the LH cars use the PCI bus and the newer use the CAN bus? [or something of sorts]

Id think that might be a road block. What about the tranny?

You can search both sites about the pacifica engine that I had. The nitro looks possable but its would still need to be modified.

You run all the LH sensors on the 4.0 to avoid the canbus issue.

Kinda why I got the SN that I do.
