    You'll have to swap the ECM along with the tranny, and drive shafts (the 2 are different length), other than that, it should be a straight swap. If you have the time, and patience, its not too bad.

    what he said. but you also can't forget about the little things. the auto will need a kick down cable for the trans. plus you might need a new radiator if yours doesn't already have the tranny cooler lines

    The auto is all electronic control, and the throttle is a throttle by wire assembly. No cable needed, and the radiator has connection ports for the auto tranny fluid.
