Uuuhhh ...

Why would you want to put a 2.5 liter 4 banger in place of a 3.9L V6?

Or are you asking "Can I replace my 2.5 with a 3.9"?

The bell housing might not match; but for some of the 5 speed manuals, the bell housing is separate, so you can swap that.

That's actually the most minor problem you'll get into ...
