Yes, I can think of several off the top of me head.

You will have to weld in at least one new motor mount, modify the rear exhaust manifold and reweld it, and then the wiring harness.

do u know where i can get the wiring harness?

Does the engine have one?

You will take the harness from the 1MZFE and your harness in your factory harness in your GT and make one harness out of them, going to the 1MZFE ECU.

You either make this yourself, or you send the two harnesses to a specialty shop, Like Phoenix Tuning, one of our board Sponsors, and they will do it for you. Dr. Tweak does a great job, and I haven't heard any complaints about his work.
