Should be one of the easiest engine swaps every done!

They are a very similar engine!

This is a bolt out, bolt in conversion. The whole block is pretty much the same. Bellhousing is identical.
You will probably want to swap the 2LT sump onto the 5L block. Might need to swap the oil pickup over too, to go with the different sump? I think the factory turbo engines got a bigger sump and if there are any oil return lines going into the sump, swapping the sump over is the easiest way to keep things simple.
Head to w w w.toyotasurf.asn.au and have a search. You will find everything you need to know on that site ;)
Cheers, Dan.

yes i have 1991 surf and i swaped out my 2lte for a 5Le was a pretty easy upgrade
the only real modification i made was the sump i used the 2lte but i had to fit
a return line to the sump for the turbo and i found the injector pump was diffrent
so i used the injector pump off the 2lte but had the fuel flow increased to suit the 5le
after the swap i noticed a big jump in power no more slowing down on hill and
more than enough acceleration to overtake cars which i couldnt do before
