If you are in the USA or Canada you can NOT replace with an earlier
engine. In particular, you can NOT put an pre-ODB2 engine into an OBD2
vehicle. 1993 is pre OBD2. Now, if you were repalcing a 3 liter with a
3 liter there is a POSSIBILITY you could do the switch IF the emission
control parts of the 2000 would fit the 1993.
Physically the switch could be done - if you changed transmissions as
well, and the entire engine wiring harness and computer.
Legally you cannot - and you would, in all likelihood, fail your smog
