This is a fairly common swap, although we didnt get the NA 2l in the states in the 5th gens.

Yes it is straight forward enough. Although i would try to find the engine out of an alltrac instead of an mr2.

I think you have to grind a little off the block to get it to fit your FWD trans.

Search 3SGTE on this site and you'll get a load of information, though you'd probably find it easier to check the stickied threads, particularly in the Forced Induction section.

There's a lot that doesn't quite line up between the MR2 and GT4 3S-GTE motors. So look for one out of GT4, it'll work out better in the long run.
