There is a sticker on the hood. It says 89 2.0

89. 2.0. Unless someone changed it after. Jeremy, is there any different physical feature on the motor it's self that's identifiable?

If it's an 89, it's either a 2.0L or a 2.6L. That looks more like a 2.0L than a 2.6L to me. Sadly, it's been so long since I worked on one of these, I don't recall the differences.

There is likely an engine code stamped on the block somewhere. If its between 2.0 and 2.6 though I'd also say 2.0. If I remember correctly the 2.6 had an evenly spaced header, not paired port like the 2.0. The valve covers are also a little different. The 2.6l valve cover had a pcv valve right at the front. I actually want to say the 2.6 was also chain driven as far as timing, while the other engines were all belt.

Are there going to be any extra wires from the truck that I need to save as this one is an automatic?

It has a timing belt, so that means it's a 2.0 G63B. Your 4G63T head might bolt right up.

The 2.6L has a chain.

Not too sure on the wiring side of things, I'd leave everything in place and remove if/when required.

If it were me, and I had all of your parts, I'd simply try to fuel inject the engine you have. Forget the turbo for now. It would be a fun project and you don't have to deal with the turbo parts. At least for now. The 2.0L is a pretty indestructible engine.

I'm not too sure on the wiring side of things either, I'd go with what walt said and leave everything, you can always remove what you don't use later.

I DO know there will be at least some extra you'll need to keep. I know for certain that there is a relay in the interior fuse box that controls the overdrive for the automatics so you'll need to keep that for sure.
