How to identify these engines, sure there are easier ways, but here is the hard way.
Oh yeah, you can see the build date from going underneath the car, you don't need to take it out lol.
VIN decoding may not work for pre 1988 models.
Enter VIN in caps on the Dodge site, or else.

trans mount with the engine torge.it was originally welded so we drilled
6-3/4" bolts through the frame and it holds. then shortly afterwards the
steering collum snapped in half while racing so it took us 11 months to
figure out how to replace it with another model lebaron which doesnt come
with blinkers or the right harness on the collum.When we cut off the other
harness it effected the brake lights so were trying to fix it.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Dodge Daytona was a front-wheel drive hatchback based on the Chrysler G
platform, which was derived from the Chrysler K platform. The Daytona was
produced from 1984 to 1993. The Chrysler Laser was an upscale near twin
version of the Daytona. The Daytona was restyled for 1987, and again for
1992. It replaced the Mitsubishi-based Challenger, and slotted between the
Charger and the Conquest. The Daytona was replaced by the 1995 Dodge
Avenger, which was built by Mitsubishi Motors. The Daytona derives its name
mainly from the Dodge Charger Daytona, which itself was named after the
Daytona 500 race in Daytona Beach, Florida.
The Daytona originally used the 2.2 L Chrysler K engine in
normally-aspirated (93 hp) or turbocharged (142 hp) form. The 96 hp 2.5 L K
engine was added for 1986. In 1985, the 2.2 L turbo I engine's horsepower was increased to
146 hp (109 kW). The 1984 Daytona was available in three trim lines:
standard, turbo and turbo Z. Total production was 49,347. The Daytona
turbo was on Car and Driver magazine's
Ten Best list for 1984. Both the Daytona and Chrysler Laser were available
with the Chrysler Electronic Voice Alert system through 1987. A performance
oriented "Shelby" version of the Daytona was introduced in 1987.
