                             ^^^^^^^

If by "completion of the aircraft" you mean it's ready for delivery, 6
weeks may well be after the engines are attached to the airframe -- a
little late to change your choice of what kinds and how many, never mind
the time to actually build them in the first place.  6 *months* might
barely be plausible, though you would almost certainly get hit with a
hefty penalty from the engine manufacturer you jilted.
