New to the 2.3 world

I bought a 88 2.3 Notch with a bad motor, i have a 91 dual plug motor ready to drop in(with ECU, engine harness, etc) will this be a direct drop in and hook up the ECU and itll fire right up? Sorry if this is a question that gets asked a million times, havent found much info pertaining to this swap online.

No, it will not drop in and run. You can take the 88 head, if its good, and put it on the 91 block. I did something similar by converting my 91 to a 4 plug head. Since you have the 88 wiring, yours will be easier. Put the 91 block in, drop in the distributor, put the head on, and you will be good!
