I'm just wondering if the gen II had a bigger engine bay for the 3.8 than the 3.0. If so, I'm thinking about a swap to the 3.0 and seeing if I can cram an intercooler and turbo under the hood with it.

Vulcan or Duratec? The Vulcan would definatly fit, but the Duratec might not. The g2 chassis is basically the same as the g1 and the g1s originally came with a Vulcan as the largest engine until 1988 so the Essex is already crowded in that engine bay.
