I need a new engine for my 94 eldorado (y). I found a 05 with ecm and transmission complete. What do I need to put this in my car.

$2500 would probably do it.

The 05 ECM will not play nice in your 94. Your instrument panel won't work for starters. MIL will be on because the other computers won't be able to talk to it....

It is not a direct connect as most sensors and internal timing wheels were changed. It can be adapted but you will have to figure out how.

Would the engine still run though? Not that it will run very good...LOL but will it still run? I was wondering someday about thep ossibility of putting an 03 Aurora V8 (forged crank version) in my car with the coil on plug etc. That would be a pain in the ass but question is with time and money is it at all possible (in theory)?
