Default 2.9 to 2.8

how hard would it be to swap from the 2.9 motor to the 2.8 turbo motor. im just trying to see if its more than what its worth. is it possible to bolt the turbo stuff on the 2.9? how strong is the 2.9? whats the compression ratio. if anyone can give me some info on this stuff i would greatly appreciate it. i mean they look very similar in design, so it doesnt look like it would be bad.

These cars are so sensitive to changes in their driving dynamics that it is unlikely a simple add on would work. As for a swap, you might as well just sell your car and buy one with the engine you want, even with a loss on your vehicle and a premium on another, you'd be better off.
