Im not sure about technical challenges. I guess if both engine mounts are same, then its a doable job. If not, RTA will seldom approve the change or welding of engine mounts.

In either case, YES you need RTA approval for any engine swap and if its in same number of cylinder range (4 to 4, 6 to 6) then chances are you will get the paper. If its upgrade (4 to 6) NO WAYS.

If its basically the same engine just with a bigger bore i.e bigger capacity. No need for anything. Just get a receipt from the place where you get the engine with the engine number on it. Just in case you get flagged for different number. This might happen even if you put in 1.3 since engine number will change

Although I haven't seen this happen since many are upgrading their engines in the LR community going from 3.9 to 4.5 from a different land rover, without issue. And about a zillion engine changes while I was running my shop, no one ever had an issue. Issue would be changing the number of cylinders 

Unless there are new changes to the rules that I'm not aware of.

Yes my information was from 2018 by personally visiting the RTA HQ for checking all the possibilities.

Every engine swap need RTA permission paper now, If its same size and no change of mount you can get paper from RTA officers in tasjeel barsha (I think).

It will fit straight in but you will need to change ECU and key transponder/receiver. Chances are nobody will notice unless they start digging around engine serial numbers which is unlikely on a Lancer.
