Either should work, I doubt there was any diff unless you're going from auto to manual.

If you're doing that, you will also need the shifter/linkage, pedal set, clutch cable, and maybe a few other things.

Any sensor that has a diff plug than the new car will be easily fixed by swapping in the sensors from the old/blown engine. If they're all the same, keep the sensors off the blown engine as well.

If you don't plan on rebuilding it, you could try selling it (probably for scrap weight) to someone who might rebuild it.. or you can take it to a recycler.

Please recycle the fluids you extract from both engines, most local autozones and advance auto parts will do this for you, if you bring it to them in containers.
