Gen1dak will become famous soon enough

Some connectors are different between the OBD I and II, but that can be worked around. Your OBD I has EGR, again, can be worked around. Otherwise, as stated, same size no computer change.

You may need to swap some of your sensors/sending units from your old engine to the newer one if they are different just so it hooks up right.
