It wouldn't be cost effective to do an engine swap. Just trade the car in for a V6. Or turbo it:naughty:

Yes, it wont be cost effective. Even if it were cost effective, the value of your car will go down when you come to sell it. Given the choice to buy an original V6 or one that has been upgraded to a V6, no one in their right mind would pick the upgraded one.

you have the 2AZ. Why not turbo it? Stock internals are good for 380WHP anyways, which rates to close 430 hp. V6 is too much of a hassle. If you do want the V6, do what everyone else said. sell the car and buy a V6.
