All turbos have TEMS and LSD.

if the whole drivetrain is in good shape, just do a whole drivetrain swap, ya know, engine, tranny, diff, and driveshaft

then part out the rest of the other car, you will end up doing the swap for pretty cheap

I'd swap the harness and ECU as well.
If you want, get an 89 5speed turbo harness and ecu.
