Short answer: No. Long answer: Still No.

The only thing that will 'bolt on' to a D tranny is another V6 PRV of
some type. If you want to use any other engine, your going to have to
have a custom bellhousing made, among other things. This is one of the
reasons the eagle premier 3.0's are the most common engine swaps,
They're PRVs, so after you swap the lower crankcase with the D one,
they do bolt right in. However just 'bolting in' another engine is the
easy part. Getting everything else connected, making the stock
computer work, or an aftermarket one (like megasquirt), etc, is much
more of a pain. The devil is in the details, so to speak.
