Default Engine exchange after defect - Which engine fits best? What is important?

Hello Community,

I have the following request. My 2005 NC (2.0 machine) had an engine failure last year and I would like to have it repaired. Mazda himself wants about 8000€, which is much more than my budget. So I went with it to the independent workshop and they want to take care of it. At the beginning, however, they immediately had the problem that the NC was only introduced to the market in 2006 and that there were some identification problems with the designation of the LF engine. In the back and forth even Mazda was mentioned, who found this unusual.

Anyway, up to now the problem is that I or the workshop couldn't find a motor. At ebay and Co there are always some of them, but nobody is sure if the engines fit. Can anyone tell me how it looks with regard to the compatibility of the different engines (especially engine mounts, engine controls, clutch)? Do you have to be careful to get one of the first engines or do you have to take care of the facelifts? Or is there also a motor of the ND-series possible (I would doubt now, because it also has Skyactive and surely builds clearly different?

Cheers, Ira

P.S.: I know this is not entirely about a conversion rather a 1:1 replacement or similar since i can´t afford higher costs in case the body and other components have to be modified aswell.
