(Licenced Technician)--Not likely. 1996 vehicles are built to OBD-II emissions standards, and have very specific sensor requirements and locations, as well as completely different computer systems. Besides that, in 1988, the engine displacements were either 2.0L L4 or 2.8L V6, and in 1996 were 2200CC L4 or 3100CC V6. There are too many differences; I can't see any way that either of those engines would fit and be driveable afterwards. Hope this helps.
