Good deal. Trying to remember, I think the 95 knock sensors are different. So, those will have to get swapped.

Ugh, I'm friggin tired. I started this project around 7am yesterday, and didn't come back in until 1AM this morning. 17 hours to pull mine, go get the new car, bring it back, pull that engine, swap parts, and put the new one in.

BTW, the rear manifold on 97'* are different than 95'*.

The oil level sender on 95'* have a 3 wire setup, the 97'* have a 2 wire setup. I didn't notice this until after dropping it in. So, I'm stuck with the 95 for a bit. Can I just jumper the 2 wire setup for the time being? Or does it need to be left open?

I wonder if he 95'* oil sender includes a ground wire. If so, you could jumper the signal and return to the 97'* loom and check it out.
