    Unless you do not have very high mechanical skills, I do not recommend it.
    It’s not impossible, but there are a lot of things that can differ. I Have never heard anyone did it and do not know exactly how hard it is.

    To do an engine swap, everything has to be taken in mind, Aircondition hoses should match, ecu should match, immobilizer probably has to be re-coded.

    All ecu’s are programmed to talk with each other, and if you replace the engine control unit and it has to be reprogrammed because there are anti-theft systems in there. ( If even possible )

    So, generally its much easier and cheaper to sell the car and buy the right car from the first place. 🙂
