ok i have been here and tried this, just a 2000 in a 94
i have a 2000 motor (i just need to reinstall the correct head and rods) it is for sale
miles are unknown, but the factory crosshatching is still visible, this came outta a 2000 longbed that was t-boned and rolled

the motor will run, but the rockers are diferent, you have yo use the 98+ intake oviously,

where are you located dude?

cam and rockers are diferent, the 97 intake will not plug into the 98+ ones. i dont know how hard it is to change the wire harness for the engine bay either . you can change the cam, or find 1.6 stamped rockers for the 97 engine(1.5 is stock and will not properly adjust for the whole cam cycle)
