Default 2.3 to 2.5 swap

Just picked up a 1998 2.5 short block assembly, actually a complete engine minus the cylinder head. Planning to drop it in place of my worn out 1996 2.3. Are there any issues with this? Planning a direct swap using my accessories and cylinder head, after rebuild of course. Hoping there won't be any problems with the computer wiring, ignition etc.

THey are the same engines, only that the 2.5 has a longer stroke versus the 2.3. Everything will bolt up fine. You'll gain like 5hp, lol. Good luck! post pictures!

No problem bro.

This site has a lot of information about the 4cylinder lima engines. You have a late 2.3 right meow, and going up to the 2.5.
Just a good read and tons of info:
