im new to owning a LUV and wanna get some power out of her. I think the V6 Buick setup is what I wanna go with, but not sure all the parts required for the job. If someone has a list of parts and specs or a link it would be very helpful. Thanks God Bless

You'll need the complete engine including all accessories & brackets & wiring plus a complete transmission & transfer case and a new crossmember & mounts. Then you may have a problem with the front drive shaft clearing the oil pan. The oil pan itself may have clearance problems with the front differential. These are all the same for a v8 or 4.3 v6 or any engine swap other than another Isuzu 4cyl, nothing else will bolt to your transmission.
