Is it a simple task to swap the electronics,
In order to creat a V8 car from a v6?
Obviously a Mod Motor.

you would need the entire engine harness and ecm/pcm from a V8 car, best bet would be to buy a V8 parts car and just swap everything.

with a little cutting and splicing you can make them work :p but then you have the TCC solenoid to worry about.

Without the knowledge, and without the desire to do all that swapping,
I'll just get a V8 car.

V6 cars here are $500-$600.
V8 cars are $1000-$1500.

Thanke for the information guys.

The only way I would consider doing it is if you found a V6 car for under $1000 that was absolutely perfect in every way in terms of body, paint, and interior. Other than that, it isn't worth the time and effort involved when a V8 car can be bought for $500-1000 more in similar shape.

I agree; I'd charge more than $500 to swap the wiring... :D
