The thing I would worry about is the engine computer.

Re: 3.8 year interchange

Those should be fairly similar. 98 was the odd one before the changes in 99

94 and 97 are very similiar. Changes to note are compression ratio is lower in the 94 and the water jackets are in a place that causes head gaskets to fail. This is fixed mid 96+
