I have a 05 2.5rs that has rod knock at 110k miles. I had a good deal on what I thought was an 05 but was really an 06 engine. How much am I getting into trying to do this swap? From what I can tell, the only differences are the water pump which i can work around and the VVT heads. With an 05 computer, am i going to be able to get this engine to run without swapping the computer and getting into a huge wiring job?

The whole idea was to swap another 05 engine while I rebuild mine for a future turbo build.
