Compatible parts between 2010 SHO and Limited?

Trying to get some performance parts, just not sure what's compatible and what isn't, I know the engine is different and all, just more worried about the suspension and what not

Suspension will all be the same as far as what's able to be transferred between the two. Engine wise, of course they aren't the same.

This may be a stupid question, but could I get a SHO engine and transmission and just replace the current ones?

Anything is possible, but that would require more work than meets the eye. Lots and lots of programming would have to happen.


It's honestly less expensive to just install a turbo and manifold from a salvage Eco than it is to swap the engine, knowing from experience.

Wait, so if I get the turbos and manifolds from a sho engine they'll fit on the limited engine?

With some fabrication, yes. That's what I did to mine. It's quite a lot of things to need but essentially you're just taking everything from an Eco and tossing it onto yours. Stock internals can handle about 7-8psi on 93
