These v6 has cvvt (Continuous variable valve timing) like BMW's Valvetronic can alter timing and lift continuously, which is called Continuous variable valve timing or CVVT.
according to alot info gather from the matrix.
now i was thinking if i keep the same lower block but switch the heads and computer with cvvt
would this Frankenstein up able to work ?
I was just looking these type of things up myself online... and from what I found it looks to be pretty much the exact same... as far as it should all bolt up and work on the current 2.7 Tib motors.... I can't promise you on the wiring harness though... That part might be a PITA... I would love to do that 3.3 swap though... I know one of the slightly larger V6's was cast iron or steel or something like that... not sure which one though... that might be an issue as far as weight... but would be nice for boosting if setup correctly... Def. might have to look into finding a 3.3 in a junk yard once I get back stateside... Def. going to subscribe to this one though...
Alright just started messing with some more research and found this on wikipedia about the 3.3: Apparently there is a larger version of the 3.3....
The 3.8 L (3778 cc) version produces 263 PS (196 kW) (312 hp (233 kW) in the Genesis Coupe) and 258 ft·lbf (353 Nm). It has a 96.0 mm (3.8 in) bore and 87.0 mm (3.4 in) stroke.
The Genesis variant of this engine makes 290 hp (220 kW).
