#465 of 486 Can a 02 Kia Sedona engine fit in a 03 kia SORENTO?
Jul 08, 2009 (10:45 am)
I was told that an 02 Kia Sedona engine would fit in 03 Kia Sorento. It would require me to switch out the exhaust manifold. Is there any other install issues that I need to know about before I attempt this job. Such as motor mounts, sensors etc.
#466 of 486 4.2 L Envoy motor into a 51 GMC 1/2T
Jul 10, 2009 (5:49 pm)
Don't know if this is the right place for info, but here goes:
I have a 4.2 l (I-6) Envoy motor that I will be fitting into a 1/2T GMC pick-up. The problem I have run into is that the Envoy 6 cyl motor has a unique 8 bolt pattern to connect the flex plate to the flywheel. Normally, this would be no problem except I want to put in a standard transmission. I want/need some transmission speed sensors to keep the computer happy and I really want a transmission whose case will closely bolt up to the 4.2 motor. I have narrowed it down to an Aisin 5 speed from a Canyon or Colorado. Hopefully, the flywheel will interchange and the trans case will bolt up. I know that this transmission is a bit light on the torque requirements, but I am a fairly modest driver.
Can any of you offer me any help on this project? I am committed to do this, so please don't give me any "can't be done" replies. Thanks for your help.

I always assumed that replacing an inline-4 with a V6 would be harder to swap than just another inline-4.
I feel for you since my inline-4 trooper is dog slow also. I'm thinking about an engine rebuild and new carburetor to pep it up.
