Actually, I take that back. Check this thread out! It looks like there may be some hope for the swap after all!! Had to get to FJ to find it though :P

im planning on doing this swap. i can tell you for a fact that atleast engine wise ALL WIRING is the same. they are the same exact engines , with the exception the displacment is a little bigger , all connections are exaclty the same. take it from us guys here on the forum and not those guys at the shop. your better off taking it to someone who knows there shit or just do it yourself. that shop just trying to get more money out of you.

so to sum it all up unbolt your engine , bolt in new engine , shim engine mount , tune , done. someone please correct me if im wrong.

I did this swap in my car and you do have to do the things as stated above....but I did find you only need to change the engine side of the harness for the 2.3 since it has IMTV AND IMRC(tumble flaps). The 2.0 only has IMRC so the 2.0 harness will technically work, but it only has the one connector for the IMRC. The 2.3 harness plugs into the vehicle harness without changes as well as the 2.3 PCM plugs into the original harness in the car so changing the harness that passes through the firewall is unnecessary. The only other thing you will have to do is have your keys reprogramed to the 2.3 PCM or your car will not start.
