I'm not a fan of the older V6, but remember that our beloved 4-banger is a modified Triumph engine
Good points, I mean, I still think the OP would be better off sourcing out a cheap NG 2.0t to modify or swap engines if they want. I just don't see it as worth the trouble to modify the old v6... unless you are trying to prove something I suppose.
