2.3 to 2.0 engine swap

Hey folks,
I'm new here and I want to talk about a little project I'm starting right now I'm a freak always building some crazy **** in is garage (300zx with RB26 engine, mods rotary engine, tercel with nissan engine, etc) and last week a guy went to my job with a 2004 Mazda 3 2.3L full full full (leather, electric windows, doorlock, sunroof, etc).... After a little inspection why the car won't start I found a hole in the engine Hooooooo poor me I was able to buy it for 300$
So I started to look for an engine to but it back on the road (I'm tired of my non-electric **** all junk protege my brother give me back in the days )
After some call I was shocked.... WHAT THE **** 1500-2000$ for a short block (2.3L)
After some research I want to put a 2.0L in it with all the sensor, intake, exhaust, ECM of the 2.3L
So here I am, a french Canadian on a budget to rebuilt a car without putting money on it

So here's the car :
