Lightbulb 95 Sunfire engine swap

I have a 95 Pontiac Sunfire and I would like to put an engine and transmission in it that will give me about 200hp. Im not sure what engines out there will fit in my car so if anybody knows of engines and 5spd transmission that will fit in my car please let me know of them and a link for the company i can purchase it from. Thanks.

I dont know what kind of motors are available for use in it. If you mean what kind by company name it really doesnt matter to me who the manufacturer is. I know that it is a 4 cylinder engine in the car right now but I have heard that a 6 cylinder engine will fit with a few mods.

I've never heard of anybody dropping a V6 motor in a sunfire. It'd be more than a few mods, you'd need the motor for one, new trans, new engine mounts, new computer, new wiring harness...... a lot of work.

I was asking what kind-of motor is in your car.

They had 2 different motors I believe, they had the 2.2 and the 2.4, to find anything for your car I need to know which motor it had.

You're better off just dropping a turbo in it.

The engine already in the car is a 2.2L that came from a totaled Bereta it has about 90k miles on it so im looking to just change out the whole thing with a new one and put a turbo on the new one. The thing is, is that I dont want to put another Sunfire engine in it. I want to drop something better.

Well to my knowledge no-one makes anything for the 2.2 motor. Well, to be completely honest, im not trying to insult you so don't take it like that. Sunfires are disposable cars, they're the same thing as Cavaliers, not made to last. The cars have more problems than their worth. They weren't made to be performance cars either, so by the time you turn that thing into a performance car, after doing all the motor work, trans work, suspension and brake work, you'd have at LEAST 12000 into that car, and, quite honestly, that's not worth it, you could buy a new one for that.

If you want a performance car, sell that car and buy one that was made to perform, like a mustang for instence, 87-93 mustangs have the most after-market parts for them of any vehicle, the 302 motor was an excellent motor, they're just good cars. For 10 grand including the car, you could have that 302 motor putting out 500hp easy.
