Yeah, I think only the power steering is different (on the opposite side).

Learned this little trick from Ameen: put the SOHC block on the DOHC head (or vice versa?) and you get a bad ass engine with somewhere around a 12:1 compression ratio. If you're interested theres a thread about it on nico but i'm too lazy to make a link.

replace sohc motor with dohc motor, must have dohc engine harness which goes all the way to the ecu and dash. assort wires where they meet the dash connector so that they mate and what not, or u can just cut off the connector from dash and from ecu and jus tsplice em together

here is a diagram for you

also, you'll need dohc ps resevoir and the ps high pressure line, and the ps hard line that is attached to the crossmember. and dohc maf and computer, and dohc tach, that should be it, i think...
