I have a 2001 Corolla, North American model. I am looking to swap the engine with a more fuel efficient engine and in my research found the 1ZR-FAE on the Avensis. This engine seems to be the best option, but I wanted to know if it would fit into my Corolla. I see from Wikipedia that the second generation Avensis has the 1ZZ and 3ZZ option, but I am not sure if the second generation and third generation (which uses the ZR engine) are interchangeable (and thus my Corolla).

Does anybody know if this is a possible swap? Also, what would be my transmission options? I would prefer an automatic (because of circumstances), so is there a transmission I could use, including my own (A245E), if necessary?

Thanks for the help!
