The car is a five speed.What will I have to take off of the parts donor.Any help would be wonderful!!!!

    Also grab the Fuel Pump and the Radiator. The 2.5 units can't handle the V6 needs. You'll need the motor mounts too. Grab the exhaust if you don't want to spring for a new or custom setup. The 2.5 exhaust is different.

    Seems to me that the Throttle and Cruise control cables are different too.

    Don't forget the ECU

    That should about do it.

    The time and money why are you going to do a small swap like that, for the time alone you could have put in a 3800SC?

    you know what, you are right I will just wait.Im going to be ripping the motor out in the future and either dropping in a V8 chevy or a super charged 3800 for my diablo kit.I just wanted to boost the car alittle for round the town cruisin!!!But thanks for giving me the run down.I thought it could be swapped with minimal expense.Is the 2.5 really slow???(I dont have the car yet,I just called the kid about the car to make sure its still there,he said yes so Ill be picking it up friday after I dig it out of the snow)lucky me. BUT I am a determained Diablo builder!!!!
