Looking to do a swap but everyone is doing a 2gr on the gen 2 mr2. Can the engine be put in the mk3? Does it share the same mounting points? Does the engine bay need modifying? Is there anything major that needs to be done vs doing it on the mk2?

It can be put in MK3.
This guy is doing it now and also sells a bunch of parts required to make it work. Currently you would run a EB6X transmission using custom mounts and "custom" axles and then create a passenger side engine mount. The videos show that there is some cutting that has to be done to the chasiss to make it fit and/or be accessible.

Weird how his shop only has parts for the 2ar or whatever I'm not seeing any 2gr...

The 2GR mount is not fully in production yet (currently end of 2020 is the ETA). The transmission mounts are listed as 2AR but are being reused for this swap
Thanks. This build will start mid 2021 anyways hopefully he can get finished
