Sorry if I'm being a bit stupid or missed something but are you replacing a v6 with this one or is this in place of a 4 cyl?

I'm currently swoping my original 2.5 V6 out of my calibra Se9 and replacing it with a Y32se 3.2 V6 out of a Vauxhall omega, trying to do as much work to the engine while it's out before fitting.
