Not something that is easy to do. With enough time and money anything is possible but not an easy task.

I'm not even sure if the short blocks will interchange.

Well, if you have enough time, money, knowledge, and skill you can do about anything. How much do you have?


This is about 11 zillion steps from plug and play.

why swap that turd forward,.
...presumably in your locality you will not have to plug it in at all,
and convince the local government that a 1997 ECU is in a 2004 none native car.

better:

you can round up a unrusted EJ25D car from 1996-99 for $500 with a dead engine in it already.
and resell the package to someone that wants it if you don't.

______

and plenty of EJ251 laying around. (landing in the crusher everyday in the wrecks and rust buckets needing a rescue).
