Ummm .. what do you have in your 6 right now? ... i dont know alot about the 6's but if its got the klde then leave that in it .. seeing the 2.5 makes more power then the 1.8 ... but if its smaller .. then it might be worth it ...

sorry couldn;t be of much help .. :S ...

your Mx-6 does not take any of those motors, the 88-92 Mx-6/626/probe uses f-series motors. The stock SOHC 2.2L F2 makes 110hp, it also comes in a turbo version. The F2T making 145hp and 190tq. One of the most saught after motors would be the FE3T (or FE-DOHC). It is said to have more boost potential than a BPT
