Um, actually no. The 1995 model is OBD I, the 1996 model is OBD II. Completely different onboard computer systems. You'll have to transfer the PCM (computer), wiring, and probably the sensors, all of them, to get the '96 engine to run in a '95 car. Sorry! -Jim

Was it a complete engine or did you transfer parts from one engine to the other? It'll work that way. -Jim

I am stumped too. The 1996 models were the first year for OBD II. Earlier models were OBD I. Sorry I couldn't help but good luck and please let us know what it was when you get it fired up. Thanks, -Jim

Thanks for letting us know about the crank sensor wire. Glad it was something simple. You might want to start a new question thread about the converter. Good luck with it. -Jim
