    I have a 3.8L 98 with a blown engine and a complete 01 motor. I searched and it seem this swap has been done before. I need any help, specifics, or advise on this. I noticed just from looking at it that it seems the fuel rail on the 98 has 2 fuel lines coming to it and the 01 has only one line coming to it. I know this swap has been done before but im unclear on exactly what had to be used from each engine to make this work.

    01 engine uses a return less style fuel system , you may need to convert the 98 to the 01 style, or try to use the 98 fuel rail on the 01 engine . this may be beneficial because a return style set-up is better for mods in the long run .your going to need the 2001 engine harness and pcm .
