You wouldn't have any problems, But in my opinion you should use VN SII wire loom & VP SII memcal in the ECM computer, then you won't have any problems running the engine in VN SI. With the Rad - its the same. Oh if you want you still can use the VN SI exhaust but I am against the idea, whereabouts that you should upgrade to SII manifold.
That what I did with my VN SI wagon that I sold about 4 months ago, VR engine in VN SI with SII wire loom & VP Computer. Runs really well.

Sweet. Another thing you might notice but (gee I just came home from work from night shift and can;t remember what its called) I think its angle or knock sensor that VR has that VN doesn't have. That is why i said to get SII wire loom, yeah VP on will do as there is no difference but not VR one because I know its different. Let us know how you go! Good Luck!
