It should be plug and play. if in doubt, use the intake form the original engine. Do the baffle seal behind the flywheel.

nothing really. remove flexplate and install flywheel.
main concern is the EGR situation of both engines.
get a timing belt kit from rockauto or amazon for $120-$130 - all new belt, pulleys, and tensioner. don't leave the 15 year old tensioner in there.

yeah, just unbolt the flex plate and put the flywheel from your car on there. Every other part should be identical. You can make a bit of $$$ back parting out the bad motor. Did that with a legacy a few years ago. The bad motor paid for the replacement motor by the time I sold off the good heads, intake, sensors etc. Plus a hefty block is worth about $10. in scrap.
