motor questions?

found a guy with a 318 out of a 94 grand cherokee, my question is i need a block and heads, this guy is willing to sell them to me, but will they work with my computer in 97 and will they line up so i can get everything running

like will everything including motor mounts and EVERYTHING mechanical bolt up exactly the same?

in theory it sounds like it will work, but are the bolt patterns and engine clearance the SAME

5.9 dead

5.2 dead

looking for a 5.2!

Thought for the day:
If GOD gave HIS only son for us...can't we at least give HIM an hour of our time a day.

Everything will work fine . Just use your original intake and sensors . My engine in my 95 is from a 2001 dodge ram , no issues . Motor mounts are the same , everything bolts up the same . Be sure to use your original flex plate also . I think that's all you need to know
