The computers will be different so will need swapping as well .. also the gearbox and driveaxles(shafts) may be different so will also need swapping ... there very well may be other differences depending on the year of the new engine ??

hope this helps

As the turbo is already on the new/replacement engine the parts are all there. You will have to swap the exhaust's over. Also before you start check the engine mounts are the same and the driveshaft's will fit etc. .
