Exclamation 2.5L engine swap

Hi, i'm wondering if i could swap out a 2001 2.5L Ford Ranger engine and put in a V6 engine. Will it fit? Will there be any problems? Any help/advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

I would stick with the 2.5 and do some mods to it if your looking for more performance. Its alot of work to do a V6 swap really. I think you should look at turbocharging the 2.5 or supercharging it. You will have the power of the V6 and still be able to get mpg in the 20s.
