Anything that would be a headache is the wiring. Everything else pretty much bolts up as long as you have the required parts.

BTW, where are you located? That will make a difference where you get one (shipping).

just so you know the JDM 7mge's are identical to USDM so there isn't much point in paying a high price to ship one here. it's the miles that matter most, but i wouldn't do a swap w/o rebuilding the engine anyway. unless it's super low miles which most can't guarantee, you have no clue how the engine was previously treated or abused.

jdms motors usually low miles, japan makes people dump cars at 5 years on average and mileage usually very low, talked to several people who have dealt with this type motor and been very happy with the choice. price is fair also.
