the motor is identical pretty much besides the upper intake the timing cover harmonic balancer and the distributor. all of these parts can be swapped off of your old motor. the transmission can also be used if you swap in the input shaft and the bellhousing from the 86-93 body 5speed

also the electric fan can be adapted and the 130amp alternator as an upgrade. the alt will be a huge upgrade in the entire electrical system of the car and well worth it

it bolts on the radiator it has a bunch of wires going into it. it controls the fan coming on etc

mine works except for the fan function. it is inbetween the radiator and the motor ill see if i can get a pic
