Question about Cars & Trucks
I would not recommend such an engine swap especially with OBD-II controlled vehicles.
Any engine that you do fit into that Intrepid other than the same 2.7 liter engine, will also require you to have the computer for that engine installed into your intrepid in order to run that engine, and if the sensor connectors are different then you will also have to change the wiring harness as well, and the cost of all of that will not justify the end result.
Even if you did manage to change everything out successfully, you would still have to contend with an emission test at some point, even if it was just to sell the vehicle, and if you live in California you can forget about ever passing an emission test with that converted vehicle, unless you are able to get the CARB (California Air Resource Board) to issue you a certification number for your modified Intrepid, and do not hold your breath waiting for that to happen.
Look for a 2005 or later 2.7 liter engine for your intrepid, they had all of the the design flaws worked out of those engines by that time.
I hope that this information will help you and save you some trouble and a lot of spent money.
