06 drop into my 03


Found an 06 with about 22,500 on it that has been smacked in the back. My 03 has 214,000 with about 4k of work to do on it, so I'm thinking a new start would make sense....

I've read quite a few different forums on doing the swap. Looks like it's not all that hard. A few things I've picked up so far:

Harness needs a little work account for the ICP sensor being on the passenger side of the engine rather than under the turbo. Will the 06 harness fit the 03 electronics? This would prevent me from having the hack up the 03 harness.

The coolant line is on the opposite side of the motor. I suppose a 06 hose would correct the problem?

From what I gather I should keep th 03 pcm in the truck and just use the 06 ficm?

I'm thinking of just pulling the front clip out to change the motors instead of trying to lift the cab off. What are your thoughts?
