Question Engine Replacement

Hi All,
Really impressed with the site and quality of posts, Hopefully as a newbie i'm posting this in the right place and not letting the side down!
I've been looking at Ravs for a while now after driving LR Discoveries for some years and getting fed up with the constant need to feed it parts and metal!!
Anyway i've just managed to pick up what i think is a bargain - '04 2.0vvti petrol XT3
One small problem though, the engines knackered!, i've done a bit of research on the net and it seems that what i need is a 1az engine the likes of which as i'm sure most of you are aware can be found in '01/02 onwards Ravs,Avensis's and Corolla's
My question is does anyone know whether any other models blocks are identical? as there seems to be a few Avensis 1az engines out there for sale.
I'd be grateful of any help, advice here.

By the way if theres anyone local to me that needs something welding i'd be happy to help, just message me.

Other members have replaces with the larger 2AZ-FE from an 05-05 RAV and I do not recall hearing of any issues.

On the road in my Rav4 since February, Traveling, Volunteering, Camping and also enjoying beer bikes and bacon. Check out the blog www.servicedriven.org

Perhaps consider a rebuilt engine. Even though the header notes "Diesel" this company apparently also supplies rebuilt petrol engines in the U.K. There likely are other sources as well: Rebuilt Toyota Rav4 Diesel Engine | Toyota Rav4 Diesel Engine Rebuilt Cost UK

2007 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Classic LT
