you can use the eta bottom end and bolt on the I head and intake along with the ecu and engine harness. cooling system? engine internals are the same. Might need to change the rad and plumbing. reroute some hoses but aside from this it's only minor. get yourself a bentley service manual or go online and do a search for swap. if you are planning on boost later on. I would strongly suggest rebuilding the head, as the extra power is going to strain the factory components. new cam, heavy duty rockers, and valve springs. head studs instead of the factory bolts and a really good headgasket. that's for starters.
