Default Installing 92 2.0 Gallant Engine in '90 1.8 Eclipse: Help & Tips Needed

I just pulled a tired, worn-out 1.8 SOHC engine out of my '90 Eclipse, and I want to stuff a nice, low-mileage 2.0 SOHC Gallant engine (which I happen to have sitting on an engine stand) back in...

With the 2 engines side-by-side on engine stands, it is apparant that all the accessory mounts are completely different, the pulleyts are different, the engine mnounts are different, and none of these parts interchage between the two engines Have any of you done this swap, and do you know what needs to be done to accommodate this? Can I use all the brackets and accessories off of a 2.0 DOHC Eclipse engine on the 2.0 SOHC engine to make it work in the Eclipse?

I've already modifed the distributor O-ring groove from the Eclipse to make it work in the 2.0, and it looks like all ECM sensors/throttle body can be transplanted easily from the 1.8 to the 2.0 in order to make my ECM/control system work right. It's the engine mounting and accessory (alternator & A/C) mounting that is currently the challenge.

Any and all suggestions and tips welcome and appreciated!
