It will fit but you will have lots of fun trying to get it to run.
You need the original ECU, ignition and wiring loom for the engine and a bit of electrical know how to splice it all into your exsisting loom.
The exhaust manifold is different to. So many people have tried this and given up as its not as straight forward to do as people think

If i were you i'd buy the whole car and swap everything like the ECU, wiring loom, fusebox, exhaust system etc etc
