One way of 'upgrading' engines is to find a wrecked model like the one
you have with the engine you want. Then you have all the bits and
pieces needed (motor mounts, controllers, sensors, etc.) and are not
going to spend a major amount of time and money chaseing down these
That and the transmission behind the 4 banger won't handle the I6.
Since the 97 has far more electronic doodads you will likely have to
transplant the ECU (computer) as well. It's not like the old days.
But why stop with the I6. :)
