The problem is that the '95 engine is controlled by an OBD1 computer and the '96 is controlled by an OBDII computer, so not real compatible. Plus going from a V6 to a V8 creates more issues. This is possible to do but it is a ton of work. The computers and wiring harness would have to switched out which is the biggest thing.
