This will probably be better answered in the 4th gen section. I don't own a 4th gen so I can't help you. Sorry.

first off, you need the motor. if you can get it with the wiring and pcm it will be better cus the v-6 pcm will not work and the wiring harness will have to be spliced in some places. the price can vary depending on how much you can get the motor for. also if you can get a transmission with the motor it would benefit you also. as for swapping it out, it will fit in the engine bay tho you will need new motor mounts, also its a good idea to swap your front suspension as the v6's had a weaker setup than the v-8s.

as for dropping the motor

then you can swap the suspension and motor/trans all at the same time.

ill do some more research, ive got some more sites with info on the swap. ill get back to you.
