Default 9000 Auto to Manual engine & trans swap

Looking @ swapping the engine and trans from a manual 95 9000CSE into an auto 93 9000CSE. Is this a difficult and costly swap?

Thanks.

This will be a little complex, but not terribly hard. Basically you're going to need to swap engine management systems too (your 93 is trionic 5.2, the 95 is trionic 5.5). Do you have the whole 95 available to you? You'll need the engine harness and ecu from the 95. the 93 ecu can't read the signal from the cps in the 95 engine, and the 95 engine won't accomodate the cps from the 93 (unless the timing covers are interchangeable, which I'm unsure of)
The auto to 5spd part you'll find write ups on all over. You'll need the left axel from the 95, clutch pedal and hydraulics, and the shifter and linkage. If you tackle this just keep posting here, plenty of folks have done similar swaps and will likely be willing to help guide you through it

I'm not mechanically inclined like that. Just have a hard time finding a turbo charged manual 9000 in decent condition. I found a nice '93 auto 9000 cse with 200k and a wrecked '95 manual 9000 cse with 110k. Figured I buy both of them and get someone to swap out the engine and trans from the wrecked 95 into the 93.

Anyone up for this? If so, I'm in Chicago...

Yeah, just keep looking. I just bought a very nice black '94 Aero 5spd with 140K for $2100. Dead blower motor and a couple other small items keep the price low. I also saw a nice cse for cheap because of the blower motor. These cars do turn up, you just have to be patient.
