you are going to need the harness and ecu the cluster with that its a straight forward swap. you may want to take the sway bars front and back to make it handle like a gt (gti).

engine and transmission mounts also axles are different you will need to swap spindles to be able to use Gti axles.

is the geo 5speed or automatic? if its 5speed then just the trans mount needs to be moved. if its auto then the mounts need alot of work.

89s don't have any seatbelt crap in the harness. I am going the other way, a 93 Swift 8 valve into a 91 Metro. I have to use the complete 93 front harness and still have to change the dash, taillight and door harness ends to make it work. This is the project for the next 4 days. I already have all the Swift stuff sitting on the shop floor. :D

I sold this car to a friend at work. I now have a Saturn L which is an Opel Vectra B.
