Give your local wrecking yard a call, they will know the right answer. If it does you may need to swap the main computers so things work together.

The motor will fit but it will not run. The 93 motor is run by an OBD1 computer and is a TBI set-up, the motor from the 97 is a Vortec engine with SMPFI fuel delivery system and is run by an OBDII computer. Both totally different.
