If you enjoy playing with spanners, stick the 2.6 top bits on the 3ltr block.
Also fit the 2.6 exhaust manifolds and a converted pair of 3lt cats if you can find a decent pair  :y

I need the 3.0 cats?  :-\

You fit modified 3.0L downpipes to aid gas flow from the engine, along with 2.6/3.2 manifolds gives about 6-8bhp, extra.

Probably be easiest to just put 3.0L cams and divider onto the 2.6,.


Interesting, but, what do win with that?

Fitting the cams,and  dividers from a 3.0L ups bhp to not far from 3.0L, and it will be easier,than an engine swap.  It's a well known performance up grade for the 2.6.
Its definately lacking grunt though, my 2.5 with 3l cams and superchipped was not anywhere near my real 3l.

I don't tolerate bickering, and I'm always grumpy.
And Lizzie Zoom says I'm a heartless bastid...and she's absolutely correct!

That I imagined, the torque of 3.0 must be much higher

I thought same with my old 2.5,cams gave it a bit more top end but with an auto that isn't where its needed
