Read these. It is a pretty straight forward swap.

Yes it will work. 97 and 98 Mark VIII motors have COPs, which is what your engine has now. If you found a 93-96 engine it will have coil packs. I am sure that you will be able to switch your COPS over to an older engine to make it work if an older engine is what you come up with.
