Hi, my name is XXXXX XXXXX do this, you will need the computer, the entir wiring harness and all the fuel and electrical from the 5.9, this would be very expensive to swap out, it would be alot cheaper to keep it a 5.2,Tim

It is supose to have the computer with it-not shur about harness. I can get this very cheep out of a wrecked truck. Would the exhaust bolt up, engine mounts match up, driveshafts bolt up? Are radiators the same?

the engine will bolt in fine, but the wiring harness is going to be different, you could get the wiring harness from a used one, but it will still be expensive and very time consuming to replace the entire wiring harness, but it can be done, just v ery expensive,Tim
