Engine swap

I have a 2008 versa with a 4 cylinder engine(I think it's a flat four I don't remember). I want to swap it with a V6, but I'm not sure what engine I should use. I have looked at Altima, maxima, and Sentra engines. Any suggestions for what I should use?

Not sure about V6 but the most commonly used engine swap is the MR20. Nothing else has really been reported aside from the racing industry where an SR20 was fitted into a Tiida with heavy modifications. There is one person I know of that is trying to fit an HR16DDT but is a work in progress. If you can find a way to fit and make it work do let us know if you put in a VQ or QR.

I appreciate the encouragement but I might stick to the things that have been done before for now

Are you talking about MR16DDT from Juke? If so, please let me know the progress and result. I am planning to do the same swap once I have enough saving.

Yea sorry that's what I meant. The guy I'm talking about is over in the FB page, not sure if he's on here but you can check the FB page for sure. He hasn't had any update on it that I know of or at least he hasn't posted them if he did.

I don't think he is but I saw it in person last Monday. It's physically in the car. He's working on the intercooler piping and wiring now.
