I doubt it would be possible. You would need the 2.0l cylinder block, or at least a VERY good re-bore to the 2.0l specifications (assuming that this doesn't require a longer piston stroke, in which case you would need the larger block in the first place).

As you are capable of the engine rebuild, you'd be better off getting a scrap 2.0l engine from a breakers yard (complete with the ECU ! as this is different) - you might also need the exhaust manifold.
Recondition this engine and use it. Sure, it'll cost a bit to get all the parts, but it'll be well worth it as ultimately (assuming you are competent and careful) you'll have a brand new engine at the end of it!
