2005 ZX4 SES 2.0L to a ST 2.3L

I have looked on several sites and all of them say its not doable. Although looking at massive quantities of part #'s and comparing them between the 2 cars the only thing that deters me from it is people saying its not possible.. but from my understanding everything is the same except for the flywheel. Has anybody done this or tried it yet. I know your all gunna say upgrade the engine.. blah blah.... well my engine is making that famous knocking noise so many of you have posted about... so its either a full rebuild or a replace HEY GREAT IDEA REPLACE AND UPGRADE!!!! YAAAAY MEEE!!!!!

im looking into it locally about getting an engine as i work at a logging company and we get cost +10% with no shipping so its going to be cheapest to go that route

thank you any advice is apprieciated

I would think everything would be the same?? Well most everything. Prolly would need a tune but other than that i wouldnt think ne thing would be different. i say do it :) even if u get the 2.3 and u find out it cant work somehow then it sounds like u could make some money for ur troubles. i say go for it

You dont pay someone to have sex with ur wife and then brag about how good she was....so why have someone work on your car and brag about how fast it is?
