Will the GT go in the 08 with a GS
Are you referring to the engines? I hope you're not trying to fit the whole car into another car hahaha

Anyway, we're going to assume you mean putting the 6g75 from the gt into a gs. It can be done, but it'll be a huge pain. Be much easier to just sell the gs and buy a gt.

Anything can be done with enough time, money and imagination. Since he will need a donar car anyhow, it would be much easier to buy a GT.

Unless he has another reason to wanting the gs, the recommendation is just buy a GT.

Best off just selling the car and buying a new one. The time and money spent doing all that work will just not be worth it at all. Plus after all this, the car will only have half the power that it did before.
Based on the 6 having a bad body and the 4 a bad engine, I think you got that backwards.

Would the transmission of the GS even be able to handle the V6 ?
Different bellhousing bolt pattern for one, so it doesn't bolt up.

Power wise...
Manual vs auto matters a lot for the trans limits. GS manual trans handles about 600whp before a dif upgrade is needed, and the auto trans about 250whp. The stock GT is about 235whp as an auto, 240whp as a manual, so yes it would be fine, but still won't bolt up

In my experiences with these cars and pulling the trans doing clutches there wouldn't be any reason for you to use the gs transmission in this potential swap. You would drop your powertrain assemblies from both vehicles as a unit. Why would you seperate them after the fact to put them back together in a different configuration? Even if you were planning on putting a manual into an auto car or vice versa for the amount of work you were doing to swap the engine, it wouldn't matter anymore to change pedal configurations or shifters.

And computers, and wiring harnesses, and ignition cylinder, and ABS, and brake master cylinder, and radiator fans. The auto and manual, GS and GT, don't share wiring or computers.
