chevy 4.3 swap

so i currently have a 4cyl yj, and a 99 s10 donor with the vortec 4.3, nv3500 trans, complete wiring, ecu. its a complete truck with about 120k on it. i want to do the 4.3 swap to get more power. i just have a couple questions. can i use the nv3500? since i have a complete harness and ecu out of the s10, do i need any special wiring harness? and what else besides the mount kit do i need to put this in? does anyone have a detailed write up of a 4.3 install on a yj? thanks in advance
