Why not the 3.0L TT from the VR4?

I think you could do it... but why? Yeah it's a bigger displacement, but it has quite a bit less power than a VR4 motor. You're really not taking any steps forward with this swap.

it would be cheaper to just put a 6g72 tt engine (vr4) in a 3kgt... even if its fwd... you will gain more out of that setup and it also would be cheaper...

but im sure with enough money you can do pretty much anything... just like I know a few guys running around with rwd 3kgts and 3kgts with big old 440 engines in them...
