but ive been hearing about a difference between motors this far apart. i know the 99 had to be different from all the others which makes it a PITA. im talking about differences as the odometer reading, and i think the vacuum lines have a small difference.
but anyways, should it just be plug and play essentially without having to get ecu and such? or would i be better off getting motor from a 99 max.
you can use the motor. you just have to swap the vacuum lines, intake manifold (including the egr stuff), and the fuel rail from your 99
