The Old Plug is the Red, hangin' next to the Dash, the New Plug is the one with Thicker Wires, next to the Plug's Diagram.

Well... this is how it looks the stereo unit already installed in its place:

I Noticed that the Main Pulley, that comes at the Bottom of the Engine,
was moving almost an inch side by side on each Turn, so I Obtained a New one...
Here you can see the Spectra's T8D Engine, inside the Sephia's Trunk, as it Came from the Junk Yard:

This is the Sephia's original T8D engine (First Gen, says K6-1) when I Just Removed it from the Car:
Compare it to the Spectra's (Second Gen, Says K6-2) T8D Engine:
And here is a Picture with Both engines and their Differences,
so you'll easy Understand how the Swap Worked:
The Port Shapes & Sizes are Different:
The Sephia'a T8D engine Ports are Oval while the Spectra's T8D Engine's Ports are Squarier and bigger,
But the intake Manifold of the Sephia Cover Perfectly the ports on the Spectra Engine: I've Just "Been There, Done That"
So I Used my Sephia's old Engine Stuff on the Spectra engine and Worked 100% Well!
Now it has more than a Whole Year Working Flawlessly.
A Closer View of How the Sephia's Manifold cover the Spectra's Engine:
Here Both engines together, the Spectra's one is Inside the Car, while the Old sephia's one is Lying on the Floor:
I had to use the Sephia's engine Valve Cover,
because the Spectra's engine came without the Oil filler Cap,
and the Older one does Not match the New one.

So, my Wife's Sephia is now the "KiaStein"
A Little Update: Do you Want to Know & see what Happened to the Removed, Old T8D engine?
I can go further and Show you:
I Dissasembled it...
...and Checked its inner parts Carefully...
...Piston by Piston...
The Welded Sprocket only took a Couple of SledgeHammer Hits to be Removed...
I Decided to Keep the Head, as it was in Good Shape...
...and Guess what I Will Do with the Rest of the Engine?
It is on its way to be transformed onto... A Glass Table! ... Like This one:

OH MY! Those are some large chunks. That will sure clog a valve body, very happy you cleaned out the Transmission more indepth
... I want to drop the Transmission pan on the Loyale and clean it out really well soon, perhaps even run SeaFoam Trans-Tune thru it. ...
