NO............mods required to do this job.

Engine mounts.
Driveshaft length.
Throttle cable.
Speedo cable.
Exhaust brackets.
Different bellhousing.

trust me.........its never easy,and the list always goes on and on.
Trade the car and get another one.........you'll have less pain in the long run.
good Luck
