if it's an internal problem, say throw rod or seized bearings or whatnot. if it has anything to do with the internals of the engine at all. then buying a 5SFE replacement block should be easy. should be like changing your oil... the similarity that is in it's difficulty. if your engine currently is a 5SFE, then buying another healthy 5SFE would make things easy. just pull the dead engine out and put the new one it and bolt it back down. should be that easy. like replacing a light bulb in your house. out with the old, in with the new.
