Can I swap a nissan 2006 nissan frontier 4cyl engine for a 1994 nissan pathfinder 6cyl. I want to install pathfinder engine into the nissan frontier. The current engine on the frontier is no good. Thanks
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi Jesus. Thanks for contacting us today. Unfortunately, a four cylinder to six cylinder conversion is not possible without significant fabrication work being completed. You might want to look for the OEM four-cylinder engine as a replacement or purchase a different vehicle.
