07 2.2L Ecotec Ion 2 Crankcase swap
So my 2.2L 2007 Ion 2, decided to throw a rod through the crankcase last night, halfway on my commute home from work. I found a possible donor 2.2L long block engine for less than $400 it has 10k miles on it, but it's from a wrecked 2002 Vue. What I want to know is, would it line up with the head sleeves/block on my 07, is there any variance between the years, as far as block internals that it won't line up right? I don't know any local shops, or people that specialize in Ecotec's or can answer this.
Thanks in advance.

Re: 07 2.2L Ecotec Ion 2 Crankcase swap
There are a few differences between the first generation L61 (the 2002 long block) and the second generation L61 (the 2007 in your car)...
1. The crank sensor and ring on the crank are different. You could swap your 07 crank in the 02 block perhaps but given that you ejected a rod I imagine your crank is damaged.
2. The heads are different, the 07 has a cam position sensor whereas the 02 doesn’t. The 02 relies on the compression sense ignition to generate a cam signal to operate the sequential fuel injection...
While you *could* swap the 07 crank and head into the 02 block, I imagine you’d be better off finding an 07-08 2.2
If you could find a 2.4 (LE5) cheap enough, you could stick the L61 head on it and have a 2.4, minus the VVT, as I think the crank wheels are the same

Too many mods to list in sig...
“Stock” is nowhere in my vocabulary...
