Chevy Cavalier Z24

Will a 2.5L engine from a 1995 or later Sunfire GT or a 1996 or later Cavalier Z24 fit in a 1995 Cavalier which only has a 2.3L engine?

Call a salvage yard. They can help you with an answer. Although, 2oz of displacement would hardly justify the trouble of doing a swap, unless if the valves are different, in that case, you would probably have to change the PCM and the accompanying harness.

First off I've never heard of a 2.5L engine unless you mean the 2.4L in the GT and the Z24. Second, why would you want to swap them. The 2.3L HO engine is much better.

yes, may require wire harness and computer from sunfire. Consider removing motor mounts from sunfire as well.

The engine control unit (ECU), or computer, for the 1995 Pontiac Sunfire/Chevrolet Cavalier is located on the right-front side of the vehicle. Directly to the edge of the front frame bar (behind the bumper), and the right-front edge of the fender will be the ECU.

I replaced my 1995 S10 2.2 engine with a 2.2 cavalier engine and it worked fine.

1995-1997 Cavaliers and Sunfires used 2 different engines, the 2.2L OHV and the 2.3/2.4L Twin Cam. I believe that the 2.4L engine went unchanged until both engines were dropped in favor of the new ECOTEC powerplant, but in 1998 the 2.2 was revised to become the 2200. So, if you have a 2.2, which I assume because of the SE trim package, then you would need to find one from a J-Body (Cavalier or Sunfire) from 1995-1997.
