Default PT GT Blown Engine swap?

My friends have a 05 PT GT convertable with a blown engine. Timing belt broke and took the engine with it. Considering buying it if what im thinking can be done. I personally have a 03 NA Woody edition with only 64k miles on it.

Would I be able to take the engine from my NA and put it in the GT and have good running GT?

The 2.4L NA is not exactly the same engine as the turbo 2.4L. The turbo version is beefed up a bit to account for the additional boost provided by the turbo.
Therefore, you cannot simply swap the turbo and other turbo related components directly onto the NA engine and be good to go.

Personally, I would look into rebuilding the blown GT motor. If the broken timing belt really is the culprit, the damage may not be all that bad to begin with.
