If I remember right it will bolt up, but you will need the clutch and all the hydraulics, flywheel and all of the electronics for the V8 to make it work. If your thinking it's a easy job, it's not.


Also take the PCM from the donor vehicle and every sensor else you will have a fit. Plus the wiring harness.
