well a 5.2 or a 318 and a 5.9 or a 360 are the same block just different bore and stroke for different displacement so everything should bolt up the same and the pcm should plug in the same but i would check that before i got it all the way in

It will bolt up the same as far as bell housing to engine. but you need to be positive that you get a transmission, and torque converter out of a truck that had a 360 V8 because their are a couple small differences between a 44re out of a 5.2 and a 44re out of a 5.9.
