I don't know, but I would think so, considering that the Z24 was offered with a 3.1 and a 5-speed. But why would you want to swap in an engine that you're not sure will work right? I have a 94 Cavalier with a 2.2 and the 5-speed and it's pushing 248 hp. Why mess with another engine when you can make a suped up four-banger? It's the future man.
