I think an '89 will fit in the '88......not the '90 to the '88 though....and it has to be coupe to coupe......or sedan to sedan........NOT coupe to sedan.........
Basically i'm gettin a JDM engine (87-90) to put into my 88 sedan. Should there be an issue here? How would i tell the year of the engine ?? Theres no way to tell.

As per other threads here......and please check for them...I'd just make sure the JDM is not a '90...as the '87's, '88's and '89's should be compatable.

my car is living proof that it does not matter if it's coupe or sedan
I have a 4 door accord V6 and the tranny from a 89 coupe bolted to it with minor modifications

any respectable shop could do the labour needed

Yup....factory color Geneva Green Pearl G-62P with Asturias Gray Metallic
NH-502M on the bottom....and on the pin stripe ( I asked for that ) when she was recently painted.

From what I understand the oil level/pressure sensor is a little different as are the speed pulsers for the A/T.

88' 90'? As long as the engine is a c27a, it will fit a trans bolted to it, manual or automatic. If the engine is a 2.5(c25a) then it won't. heads, blocks, pan, on a c27a they are all the same.

yes, wiring harnesses are different but the block and heads are the same, just swap the intake manifold, if it's the tranny, you will have to change cases, a 1 hour job with a factory service manual.
