It's not an easy swap at all, the two drivetrains have nothing in common, they don't even sit on the same side of the car (4G63 engine on driver's side, 420A engine on passengers side). Sell your car and buy a factory turbo'd version. That, or purchase an aftermarket turbo kit for your car (your car has a Mopar 420A motor).
