    Disconnect every thing from your engine now, remove, reinstall new 2002 engine, reconnect. Their will be a few diffrences, but nothing you wont figure out. May have to swap timing cover to the old one, but nothing difficult.

    Good swap. I put a 2004 PI motor in mine. Used my old front cover and oil pan. Wish I had the money for a 3V.

    Use the fuel system already in your car and like said above swap your timing cover over to the PI engine.

    I changed it because I got the short block with no sheet metal

    OK so I finally made time to do this it's a bit late reply but I been working so much haven't had time for anything. .. so after switching the timing cover and ready to drop in is it pretty much turn key and go or does anything else have to be done??

    My 96 has a PI motor. All you have to do is keep your fuel lines and ignition. Everything else is fine. Only difference would be if you put PI heads on a NPI motor since it bumps your compression up a little.

    Keep your timing cover fuel lines and throttle body plenum. Might need to use your fly wheel/flex plate depending on your vehicle needs.... use your existing wiring harness as well
