harness, complete motor(coils, injectors,etc), a fuel rail from a 3.5L(if you have an 06 you will need the 3.7L rail, one is returnless one is not) and pcm if you don't have a tuner local to you that can flash yours to the 5 cylinder os. Other than that it's all the same

I just made the 2.8-to 3.5 swap.

You´ll need
PCM
3.5 Harness
The air intake tubes from the donor are neccesary too.
The plastic around the fan is different, i´m running without it, but in hotdays i have to worry about it


Any other things are plug&play, even the exhaust bolts fits perfectly. Is the easiest and fastest swap I´ve ever done.

doesn't really matter. You just have to get the harness and pcm or tune that corresponds to what your truck is. The 4 cylinder clutch is smaller though so you will need a clutch and flywheel if you have a manual 4 cylinder and swapping to the 5 cylinder.
