    If it truly is a 1988, then it's a 2.4L 'cause 2.5L didn't come out 'till 1993

    If I'm thinking right, you can see the transfer port bulges on the outside of the 2.4's and not the 2.5's

    But yea, if its an '88, it is a 2.4.

    Believe it or not, I had a '98 2.4.......(according to the numbers on the split line)
