The silver top is E throttle which would be a lot more work to have it functional vs buying a head and block from the bamboo. The wiring alone gonna cost more than buying the engine. E throttle versions are can bus so you won't be able to tie into the old system, the easiest way of getting it done is by changing everything such as the under dash harness and engine bay harness. You'll also have the use the air condition controls
