Is the motor you're buyin complete?

Should just need to swap the IDM and PCM and you'll be good. If, the new motor is complete. Otherwise, the turbo, uppipes, manifolds, ypipe, and fuel bowl I think, are different.

I don't even know for sure if you'll need to swap 'em. The PCM can probably be reflashed? I'm not for sure on that though.

And I have no idea what injectors the early 99's had. If they had the 130cc AD's that the late 99 on's had, then you shouldn't need a new IDM either.

With or without those things bein updated, it should run. Just might not run as well as it should.

Somebody will chime in here and straiten us both out lol

Are you buying just the engine? Can you buy the PCM and IDM off the truck the engine came out of? That would be what I would do.

You might find something used for that cheap. I don't think you'll find anything new for that. A guy could probably take a stocker and put the ats or beans housing on it with a wicked wheel and stay under the 800 mark.
