I doubt if the two transmissions are interchangeable even a small change in mounting or gear ratio will ruin your whole project. Replacing a transmission is a huge job and requires mechanical knowledge and tools. Once you start doing the job you are committed and there is no turning back you will have a disable vehicle and a garage/repair shop would be slow in taking on the repair once it has been started by someone else. Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website There is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate
