2.4 is the only option for that year. Call a used parts yard and see what other 2.4 motors have the same basic long block.

If you are thinking of a transplant, the RB20 can be fitted in but you would need a complete transplant including the wiring etc.

If you want something compatible, you need to get the exact match. Changing to a different engine means you need to convert the wireharness, engine computer and many other things.
