Not sure of age of spare engine, think it may be 88 or 89...
Mine is an 86

If it's a 2.5, non-turbo, it is a straight swap.

Did the later engine not have different compression/ecu?

You will probably need to match the ECU with the engine, Generally the 2.5 944 engine was 165 bhp to the early S 150, except for 1988 when both engines were the same at 160bhp.
