Need some help with a 2.8 to a 2.9 swap

I have a B2 rough tuck with a 2.9 and my daily driver has a 2.8, the 2.8 is shot but the 2.9 runs great, i want to put the 2.9 in my daily driver but i'm not quite sure what all i need to take off my rough truck to make the 2.9 run in my 85 daily driver.

So i'm basically doing a 2.8 to 2.9 swap, but i need help :icon_confused:

Anyone ever done anything like this? If so, a list of components would be amazing!!

Thanks guys

As far as I know for the electrical you need to swap the complete harness and computer stuff vacuum lines and fuel tank I believe the engine swaps right out but not sure if it bolts up to the bell housing someone else will know more
