Drivetrain Swap

Hi All, I currently have a '96 automatic transmission Disco with very high milage that won't last much longer, I also have a running and driving lower milage '96 Disco with an R380 trans(manual) as a parts rig. Both trucks have the same 4.0 GEMS motor. I am wondering since both cars are the same year and have the same motor, what all will I need to do the swap of the lower mileage motor and manual trans into my Disco that has higher miles and automatic trans. I figure the motor, transmission, transfer case, pedals, and ECU. Is there anything else? Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am confused as to if it will work, and without too much hassle. Thank you for any advice!

Swap over the ECU as well. Pretty straightforward swap, just allot of work. If you haven't noticed I'm fairly close to you........ just noticed you mentioned that, your way ahead of me already.

97 SD - Altai Silver. Sold
94 Saturn SC2

The three-position Lucas switch--DIM, FLICKER and OFF.

The other three switch settings--SMOKE, SMOLDER and IGNITE.

Aye thats awesome! I'm currently in Ann Arbor for school, but live in TC in the summer. I don't really want to pay anyone to do the swap either so hopefully its not too painful. Do you, or anyone know of a guide or something I could buy that would assist me on the swap? If not I know of some people who have swapped various drivetrains and could have some good insight.

The service manual is called the Rave, google it. It's free and 590mb. It's handy to have.
