Normally I am all down for engine swaps, this one I would say no to. If you have an auto, more work would be needed than what it's worth. If you have a manual then maybe but even then I'd still say that it's not worth it. You would be better off buying a speed6 than changing the I4 for an I4t. It might be a little better to look into an ecoboost swap but even then with the amount of time and money to do it one could just buy a running speed6 or even one that needs some love. I've been seeing speed6s range from 1500 to 8k depending whats wrong with them or not wrong with them lol.
