your probably gonna need the ecu to control the imrc plates...i'd get as much from the donor car as possible just incase. Also you have an auto which has a 6 bolt crank and the cobra has an 8 so if your keeping the auto you need an 8 bolt flexpate.

How much would the engine from Jasper be? Is it fully rebuilt?

Good luck on the swap,
you'll need the computer and all that wiring, also the fuel system might be different.
I don't know all the details.
keep us updated.
