Do a search for SHO V8 swaps. I'm sure it would fit with some modifications, I've seen a Tempo with a SHO V8 on the net at one point, but I hardly thik it's worth the effort when the 3L is easier to swap and produces good numbers.

Neither the v6 or v8 will fit. The v6 is too tall, the v8 is too long (remember they added 2 more cylinders to the 2.5L.)

It was a v6 SHO motor, and he had to do a lot of cutting to make it fit in the Tempo, SHO-PAZ.

Sorry I was sniffing too much crack again...

Completely worded it wrong. The kit comes with the T5 manual. I meant to say the GT40's transmission. You are cutting so that the bellhousing clears.
