the exhaust should fit if you remove some of the heat shields
as far as the enigne swap, you've got enough posts to know that there are at least 10 other threads about this, do a search

if you are using an OBDII engine and harness, as the 2001 is, you will need a VSS or the vehicle will not run correctly, i'm not 100% sure but its either in the transmission that the engine came with, or its on the axle tied into the ABS. without the VSS the computer will go into limp home mode, and after about 10 miles you will have about half the horsepower.
hmm very interesting. then i need to find out where that vss is and also i will be using the wiring harness from the 2001 engine. is it still possible to run stock insrument panel (is that the easier way)? Would it be best to just find an ej tranny now or try to do the d/r one and try to pass the inspection in Cali?

To run the EJ tranny, you need to get your driveshaft modified so it's the correct length, swap out the rear end for one with the same ratio as the new tranny, and weld the EJ tranny mounts to your tranny crossmember. Since your car has an EA82T in it, the front axles will mate right up. In case you wanted to know, the speedo cable should screw right into the EJ tranny.
