Is it possible to convert a 3.5L V6 into a 3.5L Eco Boost?

Just about every part is different, so you'd be better off just trading in.

Really, I thought it would be a few parts to change. Thanks

The only thing the two engines share, besides the engine bay, is the displacement. Both engines are entirely different from each other. The heads are DI, so the intake is different, the pistons are designed for the DI, so they are different. The block itself has been beefed up to handle the increased torque, It's possible the crank and connecting rods are the same, and maybe, just maybe they use the same oil pan.

Nope, oil pans are different too.
