First, we recommend direct fit replacements. It should work, but be prepared to have trouble with sensors not matching up, the motor mounts may need changed, vacuum lines will need changed and the wiring harness will be different. When you change anything, everything seems to change with it. That is why we recommend direct replacement parts.
