Has anyone tried a skyactiv 2.0 to 2.5 swap yet? I've seen a few people speculate that it should be pretty straight-forward, but I'm skeptical that it will just be a direct drop-in. I expect the bell-housing and motor mounts will match up, but what about the exhaust, accessories, sensors etc.?

Low-mileage 2.5 long-blocks are starting to hit the market for <$1,000, so I'm seriously considering giving this a shot in my 2012 m/t soon.
