93 3.5l block and heads interchange with '96 3.5l?
can i use the '93 ES 3.5l engine in '96 3.5l Intrepid? i realize that the timing belt and water pumps are different and stuff. are the transmissions the same too? is there a way to tell by the numbers on the transmissions? thanks J
Everything is the same, except for what you have already mentioned.
Also, starting in 1995/6 the 3.5L had slightly lower compression to aid in fuel economy, but that won't pose a problem in a direct swap, you'll just have to be sure to use the reccomended 89 octane feul.
