Rebuilding 94 SC engine for my 92 SC

Hey I need to know what are the differences between the 92 Sc engine and the 94 Sc engine. Im keep it stock so that way it will be easier to make it work. I ordered a 92 timing cover and oil pan, I noticed there was a sensor on the bottom of the 94 block is that the oil sensor? If so can I just take it out and put a bolt in its place right? The oil sensor on my 92 is on the oil pan. And also the 92 doesnt have egr and the 94 does, is there a easy way to work around that?

I'm not sure of the differences between the the 2 years, but it should be fairly easy to just swap things over from one motor to the other.

I think that's a knock sensor on the side of the block. If you have no EGR on yours, why don't you just leave it off this one?

I'm sure someone with more knowledge will step up for you.


It's not a 97 Sport, it just looks like one!

That is the knock sensor on the side of the block, and you should have the same one on the 92 motor. As or the oil pan, personally I would run the 94 pan. If you know how to check your oil, you don't need that sensor, and more often than not it is that level sensor itself that is leaking in the first place. As for EGR, if you are using your 92 blower, then when you bolt the top end together it will be fine. If you are using the 94 blower and inlet, then buy or make a blockoff plate.

I would use the 94 oil pan but it has deep scratches on it. Thank you both for all your help.
