a bit more than that..
you need to modify/cut and weld the k frame, custom power steering hose, custom aircon lines, fit ba engine loom, accelerator assembly, get security flashed out of the ecu.ect

custom power steering hose

Not required. A BF Power steering line fits.

Im doing it now. The original power steering hose bolts on but it contacts the water pump and so the pump wont bolt in.

Overall fitting the engine was the easy part. We actually got the engine in with just some hammering of the K-frame (a few small dents). But now we have modified it 'properly' and there is no chance of the engine contacting the k-frame.
