V-6 Swap Question...

i have a '95 mustang with a locked up 3.8. i also have a good '01 3.8 engine. my question is.......can i use the intake manifold and the exhaust headers off of the '95 on the '01 engine? i don't want to mess with the IMRC conversion...

okay....i just completed the split port swap. i'm using the '95 headers, wiring harness(modified), injectors, MAS, PCM, oil pressure sending unit and cam position sensor. the rest of the engine is 2001. it idles nice and steady at 550rpm but has a slight hesitation just off idle and CE light is lit. other than the hesitation, it runs fine. code is PO340, cam position sensor. i am pretty sure i have it installed correctly at 26 degrees ATC. it's hard to find exact TDC on these engines assembled. there is no mark on the front cover.

how much tolerance is there before it throws a code? i have room to move the CPS a couple degrees either way but i have no way of knowing if i "hit it" unless i keep clearing the code after i move it and see if it shows up again. nor do i know which way to go...

any suggestions?
