Everything should bolt in fine, both cars are obd2a so wiring should not be a problem. Search for a website it's called ff-squad something where you can find some pinout diagrams. Like boostedcivicsir said you are going to have to switch 2 wire(y8) to 3 wire(y7) IACV, check out those obd2a pinout diagrams it's not very hard to figure out.
