Engine harness and computer from other truck.

so what are you saying if I swap engine harness and computer it will work fine ?

22,175

Yes it is basically the same engine so when you change the harness/ecm everything on the other engine will be right.

what about the torque conveter smoothing about engines being balanced differently

22,175

Torque converter should be fine. Both engines should be externally balanced by the crankshaft pulley and flywheel.

& we are sure that the trannys are the same from a 97- 01? it will all bolt up?
