I actually looked into this and not as much as you would think as the V6 is alloy.

Yes it can cause the car to understeer more to which coilovers and a good setup is recommended, so it can be corrected with work and a slightly different driving style.

In reality the only way a V6 is going in my C2 is if its gets to over 15 years old and the engine pops, past that I can't justify pulling the current engine out.
