Hi. You do have to replace that engine with another 3.6L engine. The reason is the computer and controls are designed to work with that engine. Getting a different motor would be a completely custom job with different computers and wiring harness. Probably not worth it.

Does it have to be a V6?
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 3 months ago.

Yes. Unfortunately it has to be the exact same engine. That is because all the electronics on the vehicle are specific for the the engine installed.
