It may be a direct fit. Be careful about back dating. It's illegal, and if you have state inspections, your car will probably fail. You can always put in a newer engine, but not an older one.

AnswerI am in this same situation. I tried to put a 95 2.2L out of a cavalier into a 97 cavalier. It will bolt in, but there is no cam position sensor on the back of the older block. You must use a 96 to 99 engine. In 96 GM went to a new engine control managment system. I just spent 3 days searching for a work around for the cam position sensor and there isn't one nor is there a way to put a cam position sensor on the 95 and lower 2.2L engine. I could have used this info. Good Luck!
