The blocks will be basically the same on all g16's. Keep the sump and oil pickup from your current engine if its been shaped to go around the diff in a sierra and bolt to the new one and it should all bolt in. The difference with the efi will be more around what sensors are used, ie whether it used cam or crank angle sensors etc.

The APV runs a G16B efi motor, but is completely different.  Its a slant motor, so the sump, oil pick up, intake manifold, exhaust manifold and ancillary brackets/ placement are all very different.  To the point where its not worth the hassle.

g16B from a Vitara will be the most headache free swap.
