Thats about right.

For adding parts, its gonna need the EGR pipe, sensor that sits on the rear valve cover also needs to be added. There might be more, but when you do an engine swap, just look it over from the USDM C27 in your car and look over at the JDM C27 and see what needs to be added.

I know, I know...old topic but relevant lol.
This is it...I promise...i hope. But when I get the jdm engine (c27) do I have to change the ecu or I could just keep the one I have? I know about swapping over the egr pipe, but would that be a hassle since the jdm's didn't come with those or is that just an easy swap fix?
I plan on doing the tb, wp, both seals, engine mounts, coolant hoses and radiator and thermostat. Did I miss anything?

USDM ECU will run the JDM engine just fine.

Change over the rear valve cover, the air suction valve for the intake, and the front exhaust manifold if no spot for the EGR lift sensor.

Is it just as simple as looking at the engines side by side and swapping things out like that?
