hmmmm. Keep the current engine loom (all wires from ecu) and swap the entire dash. You'll have to integrate some of the dahses wires into the engine loom, Or just splice them. 

You wont need to change the engine configuration at all. Except maby a sender or two for the instrument cluster clt temp and oil pressure.
