>From what I understand, it's a direct swap. The tranny will bolt right
up, and you can keep your accesories. You'll probably need a beefier
radiator and alternator, and beef up the engine mounts too. You should
probably start saving for a tranny cuz' you'll fry the V6 one in a week
or two, or so I've heard. Good luck! I want to do this, but $$$ is
standing in the way as of now...maybe someday!
