Thumbs down 3.0 to 2.5 swap? Possible? Done?

Has anyone ever swapped a 3.0 for a 2.5 (downgraded)? I have been considering this an option when my engine reaches the end of its life (which will be quite a while still, I hope). Nonetheless, it is intriguing to consider getting the better mpg.

Why would you wanna down grade? Upgrade to a 4.0 and super charge it.

Yeah, you're probably right. Just wondering if anyone has done it for the increased mpg.
