: 1997 to 2000 engine swap

What would be involved in converting the 2000 engine to run in the 97. As I understand it the ignition system is different, is the fuel injection the same or would that have to be swapped to?

You don't even want to consider it.

The 2000 engine is very different from the earlier engines. Even the reluctor wheel pattern on the crank and the crank sensor location in the block is different. Nothing in the control system is compatible. Forget it.

It would be easier and cheaper to just buy a 2000 model year car with the engine already installed and running.....LOL.
