Engine harness, valve cover gaskets, turbo, all the accesory drive stuff (AC pump, alternator, brackets) will have to be changed. Remove the mechanical fuel pump and block off the hole. Install all SD junk (fuel bowl, accessories, 17 HPOP, valve cover gaskets, engine harness, turbo...)Swap the injectors from his motor to yours, drop it in and go.

Yep, did the exact same swap, Just treat the OBS engine as a long block, and swap everything that is different. The fuel pump hole is 7/8" and a freeze plug does the job. Use the 2000 water pump pulley, it is slightly smaller, and the belt won't go on with the OBS one. The sensor above the water pump on the passenger side of the cover is the "engine temp" light sensor. Either remove it and install a plug, or don't worry that there is nothing to hook to it.
