Default sl2 first time swapper

many of you know my past problems finding parts for my sl2. i am considering a ION 3 'train swap into my sl2. what all do i need.

parts
places for parts
tires?
cluster
shifter
....etc....


i would far rather do a ION 3 swap but if this isnt going to work how about an A/T swap. i already have the harness for is. just need the trans and ecu. 1995 (8/94) no bcm. 4th gear is now ****ed off and reverse i have to hold the stick in reverse to get it to stay in. i allready know i screwed it up when i put it all back together after my case fix. all suggestions are welcome and appreciated. thanks in advance.

a) what parts are you having trouble finding?
b) if you have to ask if you can do a powertrain swap into an s-series, you can't
c) describe your actual problem, not everyone on here reads every single thread and follows every person's story

You'll need one of these (and the supporting stuff):

Lots of this:

and lots & lots of what this counts:

For a swap to anything other then S-Series stuff.

Why swap in an autotragic? Just get another 5spd that you haven't torn apart yet.
...
The proper way to fix a S-Series automatic is to replace it with a 5spd O:)

Default Re: sl2 first time swapper

would love to swap 5X5 but the AT around my area is far easier to come by. and cheaper.

hard parts:
cruise control
ecu
pedals

would also like to do the following:
4 wheel disc
antilock......maybe
fog lights
cold air or forced induction, not turbo
power windows
