I could not dind a lot of information on the motor in your car. Is it the original engine. Because what I found indicated it might be older. The Y engine that you bought from the salvage yard is a 2.0L. I could not find any engine sap information, but the information I found indicasted that they are not in the same engine family.
I cannot tell you whether it will fit or not. With the right motor mounts, a lot of work, money and sometimes the exhange of the lower front subframe. Any engine can fit.
However, depending first on how much came with the motor, e.G; motor mounts, wiring harnes, sensors, intake, exhaust mainifold, accessories like the alternator, A/C and power steering pump, computers. And the list might be longer depending on what will switch over from one engine to the other, you might end up spending money on a lot of parts that you will need to make the engine fit if you don't have everything it came with.
My advice is to get the same engine so you will know it fits and you will not need to buy anything parts wise that you don't already have.
To find the best engine for your car, look on-line for a japanese domestic Market engine, JDM. This is a motor that is from a Japanaese car. In Japan there is a law that at 30,000 miles, you have to get a new engine. So, there are a lot of American importers who buy these motors and sell them as they are almost new.
They will shipp them to your house and there are a lot of places on the internet that sell them. So, first find a JDM Engine dealer and check on their reputation. It will be easy to track down.
Replacing your motor with the same motor is the best way to go and is going to end up probably being more economical.
You could be getting yourself into a huge nightmare with the salvage motr as you don't know if it will fit and you don't know if the parts from your engine in your car will work with it.
It may fit in the car, but the computer may not work with the engine, there are so many things that can go wrong.
Also, with a JDM engine from a good importer, you will not only get a low mileage engine, you generally get all accessories and in some cases get every part from axle to axle.
I am sorry I cannot tell you if the motor will fit. There is just not enough information at my disposal to promise you that.
I hope this information helps and check on JDM engines. They are worth it and replacing your engine with the same engine will be worth it.
