Identifying Motor (3.2, 3.4, 3.6) Searil # ??

Hello,

I'm contemplating Acquiring a cherry 99 Box with a supposedly a 3.6 with definitely a 6 speed trans. It doesn't seem absurdly fast (as I would think) and supposedly this is a a difficult transplant. I wonder how I could easily verify it in fact a 3.6L, not a 3 4 or less.

Regards, PK

If properly done.. it should be a rocket ship. No joke. Like pin you back in the seat.. rocket ship.

Where is the car located? For $100 I do PPI's with a PIWIS and I'm always in Irvine/Costa Mesa picking up parts from SSF, PorterField etc.

FYI: to do the 3.6 in an early car takes some work.
