Yeah, it'll fit, but it technically won't be legal. I believe the law is that a swapped engine must be the same age or newer than the car. But anyway, you need custom mounts and all that good stuff... Also, you have to do some cutting for the shift linkage or something. Run a search and you'll probably find a few threads with some good info.
