Question 2000 9-5 AERO Engine Replacement?

Does anyone have the answer/s to this quandary? I need to find a replacement engine for my 2000 9-5 AERO. A 2000 'R' engine would be a straight replacement, but what other year models and engine type/s am I limited to? I know that the 'E' engine has a lower power output, and can likely be used as a substitute, but are there any mount (or other important) differences/considerations between 2000 and 2007 that would limit or expand my options?

Thanks for any help!

Peace and love,
Paul in Los Angeles

The only difference between the R and E 2.3L engines is the exhaust valves, the larger turbocharger, and the tune in the ECU. Everything else is a direct swap.

'04+ the PCV layout is different, but it's not difficult to get it layed out so that everything lines up. If you do get a later engine try to get it with the intake manifold and cam cover and throttle body and all the PCV lines if it's not too much more expensive. Otherwise just swap all your stuff onto it.
