you won't need a 4 speed auto,  unless it's got lower diff gears(unlikely if it came as an auto will be 2.92 ratio.

 

if the 3 speed auto is good, leave it in there.(a stronger upgrade if you can find one is a C4 auto some of the 6cylinders had, rare even 10yrs ago)

 

4 speed autos are only on the overhead cam engines, different bolt pattern to the engine, and need a computer as they are electronic.  and wouldn't work well with the current diff ratio either. (they only had 3.08, 3.23/3.27) from memory.

 

it will sit on 2300-2400 ish rpm at 100kmh all day every day forever at that. 

 

if you decided to modify it, then you'd look at a driveline from a donor vehicle(barra from BA onwards etc is popular these days.. but it's not easy and i wouldn't do it) 

i'd stick with the crossflow personally.. good reliable SIMPLE engine, can change a starter motor in 4 minutes and an alternator in not much more time
