I'd suggest having a shop do the repair. It's not easy and there are many ways to mees up the install. You need a serpentine belt tool, several types of wrenches, and a power steering pump pulley remover/ installer as well as small hands. The high-pressure hose can be difficult to work with and thread onto the new pump. The usual Haynes style manual would give you th complete procedure.

while it is possible to perform that swap, the newer 2000+ transmissions will have updated internals and such.
so will it work............. yes.
is it optimal.................no.

SOURCE: Power Steering Pump
you need an 18mm crows foot wrench 12" 3/8 extention N ratchet N 10mm socket. remove the belt, use crows foot to remove the pressure line, remove other tubes, remove 4 10mm bolts and pluck the pump out, go to autozone or some large chain auto parts store and buy a pully remover/installer use it then bring it back,( they have a loaner program) without the puller you will never get the pully off.
