Thanks to everyone for their inputs and suggestions. After mulling it over for quite some time, I've decided to go ahead with the swap. I've located a local dismantler that has both a '95 and a '96 2.2L. The '96 is from an Auto but they don't know about the '95. They both have around 100k miles, so it all depends on which engine is in better shape. Also if the '95 does not have an EGR port, then I will have to go with the other. I'm sorta leaning towards the '96, but again it all depends on which engine is in better shape.

Anyways.. What can I take from my engine that I can transfer over to the '96? I have recently replaced the water pump, oil pump, idler pulleys, and the tensioner. I am assuming they will fit? Does the '96 have a different belt tensioner pulley? Maybe I'll just wait until I take the engine home.

Anywho.. Thanks again everyone. I will probably be asking for more help and suggestions later...
