    13-16 engines should work. No need for new PCM. At worst, maybe have to change some sensors.
    What say you, @rbrown?

    Good to go! Keep the same harness that’s on the motor. Possible only change will need to be the passenger side exhaust VCT solenoid. That is all. Everything else should be plug and play
