Name is***** goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back,
H Geoff .
It would turn out to expensive to do this swap as the 2015 is common rail injection .
Meaning fuel tank swap , engine mounts and position of drive line is completely different, so you would need to replace the transmission and anchor points ,
ECM and complete wiring harness BCM and immobilizer system.
Dash instrument cluster etc etc.
You would need a complete Accident vehicle to be able to do this a little cheaper .
This could be done but as said a donor vehicle and a lot of fabrication work ..
Please remember to only rate my answer when you are 100% satisfied.

I will be happy to continue further and do everything I can to provide you with the service you seek.
