there are RUMORS that a ford v6 2.5cc can be fitted. Buto sorry no other info.

Have in mind thow that a HiTech management-wise engine will require ALL sensors ECU harnes e.t.c to work.

Plus the fact that the sportage 2.7 in a west to east orientation instead a north to south like ours

there is also in Korea a street car that haw two engines
Ours and a 2.5 V6 that could in theory, matchin our bellhousing
And I know because a friend that imports used engines an other KIA parts from Korea, is giving its engines for the sportages.

Unfortunately I dont remember the name of the KIA street model..
