No there's a lot of custom fabricating that needs to be done!! It's not A weekend project.

It can be done but you will need to swap the engine, the wiring harness and ECU. You may also need to swap the transmission as the old trans probably won't work with the newer ECU.

So dose that mean a 92 to 92 motor swap would be the best idea


Same year swaps are always best.
