Default paranoid, buying replacement 2000 SL1 trans

Am seekind a replacement tranny for my 2000 SL1. Have already mail-ordered the special, more expensive, 00-02 clutch. You 91-99 guys have it great. Have called around junkyards locally for the trans and they hang up the phone "we don't got nothing that new". It is all I can do to stay on the line and convince them they're all the same.

Have read many swap guides.

http://www.differentracing.com/tech_...anny_swap.html

is good. Even though they're talking MP3 for the DOHC, they list year 92-97. Lends me to thinking, if they made a running change to the MP3 (slightly different ratios) they might have done similar to the MP2. I don't mind slightly different ratios, but want the tall 5th gear for economy. Am somewhat concerned because the turbosaturns one at http://turbosaturns.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2211 mostly deals with mid-90s DOHC models and is scant on info for me.

My basic question is, is there some minor insignificant difference that Hollander's Interchange is picking up on? That would lead the junkyard guys to say "nope, won't work". And those are the ones I get to type into the computer for a look-see. If so I'll wait a week, discguise my voice, and go in asking for one for a 96 SL, or whatever.

Found some info that the 96+ OBDII ignition module sits different on the bellhousing and if I wanted to use an older tranny, I'd have to do a little grinding. Maybe this is what tripped up Hollanders?

Ergo, 96 and newer is my first choice?

Ahh, they went and changed the ratios around slightly in 98.

The tranny lump I mention in my second post seems to have gone away at the end of 1993.
