You might have to change a couple of sensors and add a temp sensor at the front of the engine which shouldn't be a problem since you'll have to use the intake from the 96 since it has an egr valve. You might be able to tune it out and use a block off plate, but you still need the 96 manifold for the extra temp sensor.
Edit..you'll need to change the oilpan also.
