Cheaper to get the blitz supercharger kit, install it on the 1NZ, tune it and run it than to try this one. Would give you more power in torque too.

As to the swap, never been done as best I can tell. All custom, the mounts likely won't line up, the iron block will push up the weight at the nose, leading to increased understeer. In all, I can't see the value of another small 4.

not to mention the intake and exhause would have to be rerouted since they are on opposite sides

I would be using a right hand drive so that wont be a problem.
As for the weight of the engine, an existing yaris has a 3sge installed and racing and he seems not to have any problems with to front heavy just distributed his weight good.
maybe i might have to go with the 3sge but i was hoping to use a 1600 rather than 2.0l

by opposite sides I mean the intake is in rear on 4A, in front on newer engine. RHD or LHD makes no difference
