Like I state in your other post - That's going to be a big job. Besides the obvious mechanicals you will need to change a lot of electrical harnesses and the ECM. There is also most likely other electrical components you will need off of the donor vehicle. The replacement ECM will need to be flashed with your VIN and mileage information as well
