    I'm interested in doing the 2.3 to 2.5 engine swap in my daughter's 2005 mazda 3 sport. It has severe engine knock and only 76000 km on it. Thought we bought a good car for her. Bought it from a dealership less than a year ago and they will not do anything to help her. I would like some advice on what year engine to get. I'm not a mechanic but am mechanically inclined. I also was wondering if you can take the engine out from the top as I do not have a garage.
    Thanks Aaron
