You really did not give enough info for anyone to answer that question.
Lot's of people have done swaps so there is lots of info available. I am not one who has done a swap.
But I do know this:
1. The donor engine and car it's going into must be specified.
2. If you are seriously considering doing a swap, buy Jim's book on doing swaps.

You can use the ti's heater core(most if not all of us with swaps did), but not the power steering pump.
