You need to use the VS headers. Also the VS intake manifold and plenum chamber. Also use the sensors off the VS engine too. There is something else that you have to do that i forgot... something to do with the loom i think..

Everything is interchangeable so as much as possible use as many VS parts as possible, as they are guaranteed to fit. I'd say yes to using the VS compressor and passenger side mount too
