    Lemme see if I remember from the last time I did this exact same thing.....been awhile so bear with me.....
    Knock sensors are all different and require extensions and rewiring.....alternator requires another hole to be drilled and tapped.....other than that....that is about all I can remember for now.....no big deal really....

    it should work as long as you keep all the electronics the same. Not sure about the knock senors tho. May wanna call GM and ask them.
