3.8 out, 3.0 in question

I have a '95 3.8 with a blown head gasket and other problems. I have a great running '92 3.0 that I would like to put in.


What are some problems I could run into. Anyone ever done this?


Thanks

My knowledge here is second hand, from reading posts about engine swaps on another forum, so take it with a grain of salt.

On that forum, members who have done engine swaps have run into issues with the computer and the wiring harness. To get around those issues, they swapped the computer with the computer that came from the donor vehicle, and did the same with the wiring harness.

Anything further, I'll let people with more experience take over.

What will people think if they know that I'm a Jesus freak?
