Swapping C32 parts into C240

YES i know it will be cheaper to buy a whole c32 vs doing this...

let's assume I'm still stubborn and want to make my c240 (bone stock) with c32 engine, brakes and suspension (axles too...?) what is needed as well? transmission? front brakes only or do I need rears as well?

thank you in advance. if I add it all up and it's way too crazy then I will just get a c32 and keep c240 as well... I just need to price it all out.

More importantly, what is your end goal by swapping parts into a 4 cylinder car and making a V6 C32?

Ok, I thought the C240 was a 4 cyl.

The most direct route it going to be a belt driven supercharger bolted to your existing engine if such a kit exists.

Speaking in general terms, in addition to the engine at minimum you will need the engine computer / trans computer / rear diff with the proper ratio.

It may be possible but no one knows until the first person attempts the swap, turns the key and drives down the road. Newer cars have many systems tied together through computer communication, changing the programming is exceedingly difficult if not impossible.

It is technically possible. Yes. Can you do it at home? No. Unless you have a lot of expensive equipment and computer knowledge. What do you need if you are stubborn and want to try anyways. Well besides an unlocked ecu for you to marry to your car not much. Other than an SDS with developer mode and a lot of time. Intercooling system. OR build your own.
Will this cost way more than selling your car and buying a C32. Absolutely. You will need to buy another car to drive while you do this swap. Probably spend around 10k in parts and equipment. Maybe more and about a year or two of your life working out the bugs maybe never to solve all of them.
This has been done before. More than once. Check out the Chrysler Crossfire forums.
