a few question about an engine swap

i have a 90 ka24e and i just blew a head gasket, so i decided ill finally do that swap ive been waiting for since i bought the car

i got this offer for a 97 ka24de with the wiring harness and i think he also said tranny

will i need anything else going from e to de?, will i really need to use the other tranny? and will it be farely straight forward? my only concern is the s13 ka24e to the s14 if im correct ka24de

i also am going to find the how to swap faq somewhere on this site

thanks in advance for any help

well the guy said he would give me the engine wiring harness and tranny and the engine has 60k miles supposedly for 500 which is around what i was looking to spend, is this all im going to need for the swap? or will i need anything else?

and do i need to swap trannys or can i use my current one?

You don't have to change the wiring harness or the transmission. The 97 is an OBDII system and the harness won't fit your ECU but your harness will connect right up to the necessary parts of the S14 motor. The problem areas are the power steering (pump and reservoir are on opposite sides and hoses are different) and air conditioning, if you still have it. The S14 is an R134 system with a bigger compressor and larger fittings. Your best bet would be to swap the whole A/C system but you can get custom connections made if you want.
