This answer was rated:

I have Isuzu Oasis S, 1997. The engine failed( the timing belt broke and cylinder head is bad). I would like to replace the whole engine. Isuzu engines are difficult to find. Honda Odyssey's are available. Can I use engine from Honda Odyssey 1996-1997. What modifications or adjustments are necessary, if any to use it for Isuzu vehicle?
