Evidently you failed to read my post. The I6 I already have. Got it for a song. It came out of a Trailblazer and is in the same series of modular 4, 5 and 6 cylinder engines that GM produces. I also said IT HAS THE SAME ECU FOR ALL 3 ENGINES. It should actually have the same engines mounts too. I just have to confirm that. Why do you say this is so difficult?
Hmm: SAME bolt pattern, probably same mounts, same ECU. Where's the difficulty in moving a rad ahead and rerouting the exhaust?
This is a light truck and I don't want a gas guzzling heavy V8 in it. There is no need. The I6 should have been in there in the first place.

Before you get hostle, maybe you should take a look back at the previous posts. I see 2 posts prior to mine, and none of them said that you had an engine, etc........

I guess you didn't see the original post. Different thread.
#7 of 7 2004 to 2009 5 cyl upgrade
Jun 05, 2009 (12:40 pm)
Does anyone have any information about potential problems that might be encountered upgrading to a 2009 engine in a 2004 2wd 5mt 3.5L? I would hope to reuse the entire original exhaust system (may need to match exhaust ports), ECM, and other original external parts except for the alternator. This is a California emissions truck so it must look & function as original.
My truck has the original cylinder head (still OK), 112,000 miles, & is used for a lot of towing. The cylinder head issue keeps me nervous and needs to be resolved. I keep my vehicles until they are totally used up; my old Suburban had 460,000 hard miles.
