J1 Elantra are by far the easiest to swap a 4g63t into add a few wires into the harness run the intercooler piping it could be done in a weekend if you worked hard. You'll want a stronger clutch. Other than that its fine run stock tranny and all.

J1s are 92-95 The accents are a bad choice their Hyundai based not Mitsu based. Sonata I believe until 92-98 used a 4g63 it bolts in nicely but the wiring in the later ones is a big mess and you have to take a wring loom from an eclipse or or older sonata and splice them together sort of icky. 89-91 Sonatas used a 2.4L Mitsu motor and you can put a 4g63t in their place but again the wiring issue... www.j1elantra.com
