The GM ecotec 3.8L V6?

the v6 is a really cool looking engine. I had hoped that the 2 L engine would be easier to deal with.
I had thought about replacing the j13 with an L16, which would probably take retooling the driveshaft, motor mounts, and trans cross member. Then, thought if you have to do all of that, why not put in a newer version engine with less weight and more horse power.
Would it be reasonable to think if I could get a ecotec engine with gearbox and driveshaft, then have the drive shaft altered to fit it could work?
