Default Re: Engine swap

If the '97 has a different fuel system, that would be the biggest pain. Hopefully you can remove the drag link bolt that holds the parking brake cable, so you can swap in the '99 filter/pressure regulator. But that is probably not too bad.

Edit - maybe that is not necessary. Just use the '97 fuel system. If needed I bet the '97 injectors would plug into the '99 manifold, or the '97 fuel line would plug into the '99 fuel rail.
