No disrespect, but you need to be more specific.

Yeah, what the heck are you gonna put in that truck. Is that 3,5 a 5 cylinder??

Replacing an engine is not particularly difficult to do. Some things to make it easier are taking lots of pictures of the process with a digital camera to help remember how everything goes together, labeling each end of a wiring connector or vacuum lines/fittings with masking tape and a magic marker, using labeled Ziploc bags to keep track of nuts and bolts and where they go, things like that. Or you could just do it my way and dive headfirst into it, and end up with a mysterious pile of parts that no one but you know where belongs, but that’s sort of an advanced method…
