    Yes the 91 has a single cam/crank sensor combo up at the end of the rear intake cam. The 94 has them separate. You just need to rewire it for the seperate sensors, and if you dont want any latency issues you should replace the ECU with a 94 ECU. Not sure if its important on a NA though.

    that's because the 91 doesn't have the wiring for them

    but, u can just mount the cas sensor on the pass side of the rear head. the same way it mounts on a 91
    leave the cam/crank sensors unplugged. i've seen this done a few times.
    u can use a 93+ dohc on any year 3/s that's dohc

    yes, should work fine

    you don't need the 2 sensors on the drivers side (cam, crank)
    because you'll be using the single sensor on the pass side (cas) instead

    remove the cas from the rear head on the old engine, mount it on the new engine
    they do the same thing, but the cas is adjustable, so some people actually prefer that
    if you look at the 2 engines, side by side, it will make sense

    u should also check to see if both are fed spec or not
    this could cause some minor, but fixable issues
    count the # of vacuum lines on throttlebody of each engine, that's the easiest way
    if they both have 1 or both have 3, that will be one less thing to worry about

    also, in case you didn't know, our car's aren't "dsm's"
    most people don't

    nope, not dsm's, not that there's really that much of a difference.
    1 vac line means most likely you have a fed spec engine and if your car is also fed spec, should make things easier
    so everything's installed and all together?
    don't still have the original engine?

    if you don't know what you're looking for, here is the cas


    Stealth 316 - CAS Replacement - DOHC 1991-1992

    what's the story here? what are you trying to do?
    is it finished? have you tried to start it already?

    somethings not right...
    anything less than 100 per cylinder, i don't think it will start
    hope you didn't pay too much for this thing
    i'd have probably have someone look at it at this point
    if you're up for a long road trip, i have a running engine i'm selling for cheap
