I have a 1995 and a 2004 - I am aware of the differences in computer systems, anti-lock brakes et cetera with the 2004, but is it possible to use the entire driveline from the 2004 in the 1995? The 2004 has right front damage to the suspension and body and I have been unsuccessful in finding affordable parts to fix it. Are the Gen 3 engines physically the same so they will bolt into the 1995? Same for the transmission and rear end?

Yeah, whole different control system between the two, so that is going to be a big challenge. Physically speaking they are similar enough sizes that you probably could swap them, but actually getting the car to do anything after that is going to be the difficult part. I'm guessing the front cover accessories and plumbing locations could pose a challenge as well, but haven't looked at them that closely in a while.
