I believe the intake is slightly different for carb to f.i., but I will defer that to someone with a 2.5 that has done the swap themselves.
Actually, theres not difference that I can tell between an 87 and 89 2.5. I used to have an 87 along side with my 90 and didn't find any differences between the two.
