Hi there - first task is to check for problem codes, whether the Check Engine light is illuminated or not. This will guide the most direct path to a fix. Since this is an engine swap scenario, I would next to be sure all connectors are securely attached, especially the oxygen sensors and other engine management sensors. For assistance, I would recommend a poor engine performance inspection by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
