Yeah, you may have to swap the bellhousing.
Give roger a call at to know for sure what you'll need.

If you're planning to mod it, drop in the engine, if not just take the heads, intake, fuel rails, etc and swap it onto your long block and swap the computer.

It will all bolt on.

but the 01+ blocks are a lot stronger.

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
