Well I finished the motor swap and everything bolts up for the most part. I used the old intake beacuse it had a bigger throtle body on it so I needed to make a braket for the MAP sensor and just put a vacume to it. I also had to put slots on the injector connector so they would connect to the 1.6 injectors witch was very simple to do. There were very few things that were diferent and the swap was simple. The one main thing is though that I didnt know till now is that the 1988 and the 1993 distributors were diferent so I was having a hard time timeing it. They must be clocked diferently so I couldnt get it in time. I put on the older distibutor and it worked fine and ran awsome. The dristributor years goes I belive 1986-1991 then 1992-1995 so I had to get a new distributor. Other than that very easy to do.
