The engines are interchangeable but need 2 holes drilled in the block to accept the Oil flow and return pipes the return oil pipe is push fit so just requires an 18mm hole approximately, the oil flow to the turbo is threaded so requires a machine shop as this pipe goes into the oil gallery in the block and as such it is under pressure, it will drop a small amount of swarf into the gallery and the sump so removal and a good flush is essential before you re-fit the engine is a must. Failure to flush the engine properly could result in damage to the engine.
Hope this helps
