can I swap engine parts & tranny from 79zx to78z?

I want to put the 5 speed tranny from a 79 zx into my 78z and my 4 speed back into the zx, will they just swap over ?

Also will all the engine components be compatible so I can swap out the fuel injection system or what ever else I need.

I understand, I did actually, but nothing came up for compatibility of parts for 79 280zx and 78280z, I worded it a few different ways then posted.
