Thats a damn good idea... there seems to be a lot of room in the engine compartment... maybe the plan was to make the V6 fit. hmmm... Grab an engine from a totalled Mazda 6 in the junk yard.

Different mounts for sure.

I looked at an engine bay of a 2.3L M6 and noticed how the M3's crumple zones protrude a bit more. Mounts are different, doesnt mean it wont fit.

My thoughts are the firewall may have to be banged in to fit the engine. But I think it will fit with custom mounts.
