4.3 chevy swap into a 95YJ
I have a 95 YJ 4-banger with 120k on it. I was considering a 4.3 Vortec swap and came across a 2000 donor with 15k on it. Comes with everything....(will run on the garage floor with a battery and some gas). My question is about the computer. It was pulled from an automatic Bravada. I believe i will have to re-program it to mate it with my stock 5-speed. If so how much $$ am I looking to spend for that.
Thank you for your thoughts

I'd suggest hooking it all up without programming the computer. A guy I know put a TBI 350 into a FJ40, pulled the engine, wiring harness and all from a late 80's K1500 with an auto. His FJ has a 5spd in it. Everything is working fine. Was amazingly simple, just busy work hooking everything back up.

Save yourself some trouble and headache down the road and get a different tranny. The AX-5 doesn't like to live behind a 4 banger, let alone a V-6. Heck just the adapter alone costs as much as the automatic 4L60E that comes with that engine in some cases.

01 WJ bone stock. And the wife says it'll stay that way... for now
