PI Swap questions

I had a few questions before I ordered my engine, hopefully they can be answered

1) AC compressor, PS pump, ect.- Will they bolt right up without any problems?
2) Engine ground- Are the aluminum blocks grounded differently, if so how?
3) Flex plate- Do I have to swap over my current flex plate to the new motor or use the existing one on the explorer motor?
4) Motor mounts- Are the mounting holes different on the explorer block if so what needs to be done to modify it?

I already have a PI intake and all that stuff so I can just swap it over no prob.

1) It's all the same
2) I believe the ground bolts to the motor mount bracket. If that's the case, it won't be any different.
3) Use your flexplate
4) I think there are places that need to be ground on the block and/or the bracket. Should be able to find it in a search.

Yeah, I found it in a seach, didnt know if they'd be different on a '05 block (which is what Ill be using)

Other questions that I couldnt find an answer to in the search...

Can I use the explorer exhaust manifolds, or reuse mine?
If i get a maurader TC, I also have to get the flexplate right?
Oh, and how hard is the pickup tube to switch over (never done one before)

and finally the 05 engine is 2V right? Theres some sites that say its 3v and some that say its a 2v

Use your manifolds.
Yes you have to get the flexplate.
Easy as pie to switch the pickup tube over.

'05 should be 2V

Just swap your crank and cam sensors to the new motor.

The easiest way is to just use everything from your motor. You can't go wrong that way.
