4V swap question

Yes I know their is a sticky

But ,
My friend has

99 cobra longblock ( pulleys , flywheel, clutch , manifold, injectors, etc )- 140-150k miles ( don't ask why he bought it with that miles .. I don't even know )
The T45 transmission that came with it
He bought full exhaust, cold air intake , eTC.
Cobra throttle cable
top upper coolant crossover tube
Engine harness
Getting a custom email tune for swap
He thinks his 2V motor mounts will fit on the 4V block,

Is he missing anything ? Is it that easy?
I'm worried about the ECU problems /Pacesetter 4V long tubes not fitting correctly / and that he's missing things ..

The guy said it needs a new water pump, and the PS pump doesn't look good either ..

Any tips would be awesome

Going to need 4V COPS or the strap kit to make the 2V COPS work with the 4V. Also while its out he really should consider tearing the motor down and rebuilding it. There is no better time to do it then now when its out. The 2V computer should run it ok, enough to get it to a tuner at least or just flatbed it there. If there are 145k miles on that T-45... eh... have fun with that one... The 99s did get the carbon fiber blocker rings but still.

OR, if the mileage on his 2V is lower he could pull the heads, have them gone through and then bolt them on along with all the 4V specific stuff, rip apart the 99 motor and then sell the crank/teksid block to make some money back. If he's already a 5 spd not sure why he got another one. If he's auto he'd be better off keeping the auto IMO. He'll win way more drag races with it than with the 5 spd.

Trying to think of what else that needs done... wiring is a little different cruise cable might need swapped, its all the little stuff that is a pain in the dick.

And I honestly think swapping in a 145k motor is idiotic but I'm sure you already had that discussion with him.
