Probably at least as bad as a Jeep so worse than a cow.

You may have to change the ECU as well.

One thing I know about the '96 is that it had a position sensor in the top center of the bell housing. You '92 likely doesn't have that. At least not yet. May be something you can add. Probably need the bell housing, the sensor, the flywheel the engine harness and the ECU from the '96 truck to make it all work.

You will need to swap the timing chain cover from your 92 onto the 96 engine. Problem solved.
