Not possible. The mounts on the 4G63T are different plus the oreintation of the motor is opposite of what is on your current motor. tjhe 90-94 4g63 series motor is a 1st generation engine and the 2000 car has a 1st gen beta which is similar to a 3rd gen Mitsu 4 cylindar engine.

Welcome to the forums!

Please search a bit. This has been thrashed out before.

The short answer is no. Lots of differences between the two engines. If you're going to spend that much money on a swap, just turbo the Beta. It's a lot easier, and you'll get the power you are looking for.

There are TOO MANY differences to list. I mentioned 2.

1. The orientation of the 1st gen 4G63T is the motor is on the drivers side of the US spec car. The 2000 Elantra Beta 1 motor is on the passenger side. I also think the rotation of the engine is different as well (not 100% sure on that one).

2. The engine and tranny mounts are different. Things won't bolt up.

For the same money, a turbo on the beta engine can be done.

With a J2, nothing.

Turbo and be happy that the Beta is a very happy and durable motor when swallowing massive quantities of air. 250 whp on stock internals is not a problem from what I've heard.
