    3.2l engine damage

    My timing belt skiped a tooth and caused some damage to the engine. I was curious, being that the 3.2 is hard to find for a replacement, can a 3.6 be swapped in with relative ease? Otherwise I was thinking of an LS swap, if I can find the correct subframe as I believe theyre different. Thanks for the help.

    a 3.6 or even a LS can be put in for the right amount of money, but you can still get a 3.2 and for much cheaper than what it would cost to go to a 3.6 or even a LS engine

    make sure that you get the heads redone on both sides...or if you only had one side get damaged, go ahead and replace the other side also...it will be worth it in the long run
