Can you swap a Protege engine into a Mazda3

:
2005 Mazda 3
Recently had my engine fail on my 2005 Mazda 3. My buddy has a 2002 Protege that just sits around so we had the idea to try and swap the engines.
Any ideas?? We figured it would be about the same configuration as to not have to go out and buy any extra parts but if anyone has any feedback or advice that would be awesome!
Let me know

Will probably be more trouble than its worth - completely different engine designs. I would go the junk yard and look for a similar vintage Mazda3 engine.
