    there's a few people who've done turbo v6 swaps using the KL motors.....

    Actually, I find more room in the engine bay to work on the KL than the FS.

    And sorry....last 2 FS motors that were at my house went to the scrap yard with the car.

    4k is a bit high. KLZE's go for 1000-1200, 1500 with a pcm and a transmission.

    having worked on both motors, the V6 is 100x easier to work on than the FS-DE
