It might work in my favor with the amount of turbo 4cyl parts I have to perhaps do a 4G63/4 build instead of an LS1 build. If I did go this direction I want to keep the customization to a minimum. So I was seeing if anybody had a 4G that will bolt up to the stock Starion transmission. Could be a build one or a bare block.

Nope, most certainly not easy.

Good luck though

Also, the blue island lkq has an 89 mighty max, but I can't tell what engine it has or if it's an automatic from the photos (needs to be the automatic 2.0 4g63 to be a wide block).

The Chicago heights lkq has a 87 (again can't tell from the photo) and 92 Ram 50 (definitely a wide block 4g64, could be 6 bolt or 7 bolt depending on build date).

There's nothing wrong with using a 7 bolt 4g64 by the way, and any of these engines aren't as hard to find as some think.

a wide block 4g63? Quite rare since it was only offered in Automatic Pickups in the US. Wideblock 4g64? All day long in every 89+ pickup (92 or 93 is when the 7 bolts started popping in, anything before that is a 6 bolt) and the vans, 7 bolt wideblocks with Evo decks are in 96-99 Montero Sport ES.

The downside to wideblock 7 bolts is aftermarket flywheel options, because only the 6 bolts can use the g54b Fidanza and Competition clutch flywheels and also Bill Hincher does not build bellhousings for the 7 bolt wideblocks either.

I found a 64 in a scrap yard, still in the truck.  Went across the scales with about 500lbs of scrap, came back with engine, then got a check for the difference.  Winnner, winner.

No just letting you know that junkyards and internet aren't you're only option.  Got the whole engine for my car.  Going 64 but staying SOHC.
