Default How much would it cost to put a v6 engine in my 2005 acura rsx base model?

I just got my 2005 acura rsx about a week ago and it has 56,000 miles on it and i like to go fast. It has a little bark under the hood but i want it to blow people away. I want to put a v6 engine into it and put dual exhaust but i dont know how much it would cost. Please help =D thank you

Expect to spend about $7,500 to do that. Probably more than the car is worth.

You won't be able to cram a V6 into an RSX because the engine compartment is too small.

Like Robert e. Lee said, there's no way a v6 would fit... plus you would have to get an all new wiring harness and everything... If you want power that bad just go turbo, it will be cheaper and easier.. and possible.
