New to me 3.2!

Well I broke down and did it. Sitting on the floor of my garage is a 3.2 engine. new front bumper cover, center inside and outside trim and radiator duct. center radiator hoses, Front S brake caliper rotors pads, Carrera air ducts. On order still deep sump X51 baffle and L&N IMS kit. I have to be ready and tested by March 14.

My biggest question is the ECU Will the 2.7 ECU able to be programmed to handle the 3.2 or will I need to find a new ECU. I already check all the plugs look the same.

If this is for a 2003 & the new engine is Vario-Cam + you shouldn't have to touch the DME ECU & shouldn't touch it unlees after the 3.2 is running well you want to flash a higher performance program.

It's a 2004, the compression is good I don't currently have a leak tester but ordered one off Ebay. My motor is still in good condition so No rush to cut corners. Looking at replacing the oil pump shaft, plug, coil packs, Water pump, and installing a lower thermostat before removing any bolts from mine. No surprise the motor mount on it is split out.
