Sort of. #1, do a search for such a thing. I know i have seen many many engine swap threads on here where they have talked about putting an older engine into a 98 or 99. Secondly, try posting this in the second gen section, no one looks here.

Just swap the intake, and the rest of the sensors off the current motor, to the new one. Bolt right in, hook right up.

When you perform the intake swap, be sure to fix the plenum gasket/plate issue on the intake that will ultimately end up on the motor that will be in the truck.
