I can see swapping the pans in order to get the crank sensor and all but I dont understand why you need to swap the pulley.

In order for the sensor to work the pulley needs to be a toothed style. It's actually the timing gear.

You will need to swap all the front end stuff.
Don't sweat it, it's not hard.
The crank timing gear has the toothed wheel (reluctor) for the sensor.
The timing belt for the late model is wider so you will need to swap the belt and cam gear and tensioner as well.
Realistically it is just a timing belt r&r with gears. About 1.5 hours, in the car. 15 minutes on a stand.

Also you will need to swap the speedometer driven gear. Just take the one bolt out that holds it down and pull it out. The 96 has 13 inch tires so it needs a 17 tooth gear to keep the speedometer accurate.
