Someone smashed in the passenger side of my black beauty in a parking lot and drove off. Insurance is calling it a total loss I have put about $2500 into the motor (new lifters, cam, sensors, fuel pump, etc) because I love my aurora. So, I came across a '02 3.5 for sale real cheap because the motor is shot. What I am wondering is if the 2001 4.0 motor and fuel pump can be installed in the 2002 3.5? Is everything compatible? Thanks for any feedback that is helpful.
Awww, sorry to hear that! Welcome to the club, I lost my 02 in a parking lot recently too.
I know that at the very least, you'll need the cradle from the 4.0 and the PCM. Not sure how realistic it is to upgrade the 3.5 to a 4.0 overall though. Hopefully someone else will chime in. Best of luck to you!
