Thank you for the information. I plan to put a 2009 engine on my 2006. Did you keep your 2006 electronic box, exhaust, air box, etc?

The 09 is the same as the 06, 07, 08 in the frame and the motor for all practical purposes. It WILL bolt up.

Everything is perfect, bolt on!! I have a bit of jetting to do. I had a high compression piston and hot cams S2 in my 06 engine. I'm stock with the 2009 so the jetting is not really good.
