its not real likely. gm went to obd2 on all vehicles in 96 and that includes alot of sensors, pcm etc. will the old sensors fit in the newer engine i am not sure you would have to find someone who tried it, which seems unlikely people who are mechanics would just get the right year replacement, because its much easier

I agree, find one that was originally put in. It will be much easier in the long run.

I agree, I wouldn't even try. The 2.3 is the old "quad 4" engine and it'* completely different then the 2.2 so not only will wiring and engine management systems not match but things like engine mounts and belt drive accessories will be different.
