V6 to V6 Swap

Ok, I really want to drive my truck around this summer, and I am considering keeping an eye out for a V6 from a Ram or Dak.

Just wondering if I found a Magnum 6 instead of an older 6 would I need anything other then the motor, or also the ECM? Because the only difference with Mag vs Non mag was interal but I'm not sure if there might be some controller issues too??

I just don't know if the Hemi will be done this summer, but I want to drive the damn thing.... the old engine just isn't overly reliable ...

I can get a motor for 2-300 bucks.... Assuming its just plug and play...

magnums have one in jector per cyclinder and our pre mags are throttle body injected. but you may be able to use your manifold and not have to change anything, but i'm not certain on that
I guess in that case the 5.2 out of the 92 Dakota I'm getting in a week should be an easier swap then? LOL... My 6 is having issue on the intake mani, which is why I figure why dick around with it, replace it, whatever.... I need to pass emissions before I can drive it, which is why I was goin to ditch my failing 6 I have currently, I've put a few hundred into it.. now it actually tests WORSE for some reason.. so its goin... and just swap it all... its only somewhat temporary anyways till the Hemi is done, and both swaps 6 or 8 can be done in a weekend... so .. screw it...

5.2 en-route
that 92 is a magnum i think, which means the harness has to come with
