your car is LH2.2, the donor car is LH2.4. You can upgrade to 2.4 fairly easily, but the big hurdle is swapping on the crank sensor wheel which is part of the flywheel/flexplate. Also, turbos usually had better transmissions than non turbos. I'd be tempted, if you're going to the hassle of 90+ LH2.4 Turbo (worth it for the tunability/gains, i think) to just replace the headgasket on your donor engine and swap the whole engine/transmission combo right in.

then it's all in one piece, and you've had a chance to look it over before install
