Simple Rebuild Question

So I had a 93 YJ a few years back that was unfortunately totaled. I parted her out and kept the engine. People Called me a border for it, but here we are 2 Wranglers later and I am now going to rebuild the engine. It have 124k on it and came out of the 93 YJ. It is a 2.5L 4cyl. I NOW own a 97 TJ that currently has a 2.5L in her as well. I noticed some differences in the air box etc. It appeared to be the same engine. I am hoping to adapt the slight changes to the 93 engine when I rebuild it so it is a direct bolt in. Here's the thing. I am looking at master rebuilt kits, and keeping it stock, NO over sized pistons or anything. I see that the master rebuild kit is different for the 90-95 and the 97-98 2.5L. I am building it FOR the 97, but it IS a 93 engine. It seems as though I should buy the 90-95 kit to rebuild. I just wanted to verify that this is the correct choice. This is my first engine rebuild and I want the master rebuild kit because it come with almost everything needed. I am dead set in doing the project this way so please don't try to take the thread in the direction of other engine options. Also I am still paying off the Jeep for the next 5 months so cash won't be entirely plentiful until thats done.
