If it's the same engine, worth a punt. If it's different, don't bother trying unless you've got a long time and deep pockets!

Contemplating scrapping both, same engines bar a few differences with hoses and cat , my main concern was ECU . If I went to the trouble of swapping them would it start ? Would it be a waste of a few days of my life lol !!

If you post the VIN of both cars, we will be able to look up the specifications and give a more informed answer.
