No engines are interchangeable these days. You car has an operating system for one specific engine and nothing else. It's also against Federal law to modify a Federally emission certified vehicle in any way.

Thanks for reply. So it is possible to replace my rx300 engine short block by any other 1mzfe short block (like camry, sienna, avalon and highlander)

That is a question to put to a salvage yard as they have access to interchange books that the rest of us don't have. They can tell you if the block is exactly the same or not.
