it'll work, but there will be extra sensors/places for sensors on the 96-97 blocks as they were OBDII. Just leave them unplugged and it'll work. There's a cam sensor and a few other misc things.

no, there's a freeze plug that just has to be removed. I'm sorry, I don't remember the specifics of converting the car motor to be like the truck engine. There's a few threads of people who have done the swap. Just search car to truck 2.2, or look for the 2.2 growing pains thread.
