Can i just cut the connector and replace with the 89 connector? Can i just swap out the sensor and not worry about the flywheel?
for simplicity i'm trying to swap the n231 ax5 and 2.5 as an entire unit from one vehicle to the other.
thanks for the help
The engine blocks are basically the same. I would switch over the entire fuel injection system from the 95, the whole intake throttle body, etc. the distrubutor, basically all the externals of the 95. The computer is not going to know the difference between the 2 blocks, they have not changed, it is the same displacement.. the block. So your computer will think it is the same engine. That is what I would do. The part number is probably different for the sensor, it is a different computer, ecu, etc. but the notches on the flywheel should be the same. Are you saying that then that the sensor is different because the notches on the flywheel is in a different location, or the mounting on the bell housing is in a different location? Retain your computer, and cps and switch over all the "externals on the shot engine. Thats what I think I would do from what you are saying.
