The oil is the same (as its using the Jimny sump/oil pan). 5W30 works well and is light enough to let the engine rev freely.

The spark plugs will all be the same for either engine. Ideally iridium tips, but thats just to make them last longer.

I would advise changing or at least checking the oil/plugs/filter after a few hundred miles on the new engine, just incase theres any dirt got in there when doing the swap.
