Question: changeing a 1994 cj 5 4 cylinder to straight 6

i have a 1994 4 cylinder jeep cj 5. i want to replace it with a straight 6. Does both motors have the same bolt pattern for the transmission to bolt. Do i have to change the computer and also how much of the wireing harness needs to be changed?
