Tranny'* are the same but you'll need new pcm with anythign 94 and up. 92 isn't as desirable because there is no EGR valve, and it burns a lot of exhaust valves etc cause of this, and it doesn't have roller rockers like the 93 and up does.
94 was a transition year, it had obd II hookups on a obd I pcm, and therefore causes problems, also had a different PCM. You're easiest native transplant is a 93, N/A or */C really. But if you can't find one, or want more performance, i'd say find a seires I or II l67 (supercharged) If you're swapping, might as well do it with the biggest toys! They aren't much more expensive either. I'd avoid series II N/A because of the intake manifold problems as well.
