Question 84 N/A swapping in 86 vg30det

Ok so I bought an old rusty 1986 automatic turbo z31 for $700, and then I bought a clean 5spd 84 N/A for $400 the guy said he pulled from his demo line and didnt try starting it, but i got the engine running smooth after playing around with it for a couple hours. I am planning on taking out the N/a motor and swapping in the vg30et from my '86. I'm just wondering what will I need for the swap? the 5spd transmission I'm hoping is still good, the clutch is limp right now so I'm hoping theres just air in the clutch or needs a new master. I'm hoping to pull both engines, and just swap them. Do I only need to swap motors and ecu's? Any help is appreciated.
Cheers!

I've looked at that post and the link on it for how to do it is broken, takes me to https://web.archive.org/web/*/redz31...ges/turbo.html and thats why I asked here. I've searched for it for a couple days now and haven't had any results. Thanks tho
