You'll need to make the engine harness, engine/powertrain computer, sensors, and sending units all play nice together, as well as checking if you can keep the exist. tranny. The computer for the donor engine will need to be swapped in as well, then reflashed so it's mated to new engine/tranny, VIN, mileage, and anti-theft.
