Tranmission/ engine swap HELP please!

Beginning question to my winter project lol. I have a 90's style 4 cylinder 5sp carb yj frame and drive train that is the start to my project. Im assuming it has the manual ax-5. But since its bare i was thinking of switching the engine to a 92 4.0l HO fuel injected that was orginially a automatic. My main question will the 4.0l HO bolt to the 4 cylinder transmission or would you need to switch the transmission to the ax-15 manual?
Also anyone know how much rewiring would be involved?
This is my first ground up project (for the road lol) any little pointers would be greatly appreciated!

It will not bolt up to anything but a 2.5. Your gonna need an AX15 or automatic. The wiring isnt too bad. Your also going to have to cut and reweld the engine mounts.
