My 2.4L went out on me and I want to replace it. I was thinking about putting a 3.1L in it and was wondering how much trouble it would be. I realize the motor mounts will have to be changed, but what else would I have to change, and would it be worth it to put put a 3.1L in it instead of the 2.4L it came with?

not really, the 2.4 has amazing capabilities as does the v6, it depends what you want to do with the car... its probably not worth the headache in a 97 ga especially since, you seem like you have no idea what you are doing

Well lets see, wiring, computer and thats about it. lol

But honestly, your better off putting a 3400 in there instead of a 3100. Tranny should bolt up, but are you running the 4T60E or the 5-speed?
