Would this be a good engine swap?

I know about the b18ft engine, from my understanding this is the same block so fitment should be similar and relitively easy. But is this engine even decent.
Its a 2ltr but no turbo

Yeah thats basicaly same fitting procedure as the B18FT turbo engine.

I've driven a 2l Laguna powered 5 before, wqas suprisingly nippy, think this will work well too.
