Default Parts from 92 SE to a 92 SSEi

My brother just picked up a 92 SE as a parts car for my 92 SSEi. I'll be tearing into it soon but I had a few questions as to what is salvageable.

Would these work on my SSEi from the 92 SE?
1. Starter
2. Air compressor - for rear strut adjustment (does the SE even have one?)
3. Power door lock actuators
4. Oil pressure sensor (screws into the engine block)
5. Strut assembly (SSEi has memory steering, may swap with SE if the SE'* doesn't have any problems.)
6. Air compressor - for air conditioning
7. Transmission (doubt it)

Thanks a ton! If there is anything else that I should know won't work in my car please feel free to elaborate.

P.*. The rest will be sold as parts.

Are you positive about the starter being able to be swapped into my SSEi? I think I read somewhere it couldn't.

Anyone able to answer 4 and 5? Thanks!

1. Not really. The SSEi uses a gear-reduced starter due to the DOUBLE belt path and resistance to the motor turning. The other way around would be great.
2. No. The SE doesn't have one.
3. Yes.
4. Yes, if your car has an oil pressure GAUGE. Some SE'* didn't.
5. Yes, but used struts are like used tires. It won't be any better unless it'* in better CONDITION. SSEi'* don't have memory steering, and steering has little to nothing to do with your struts.
6. Yes.
7. No. Gear ratio is different, and your shift points will be fooked.

In reply to the tranny question, I've been researching this too and I found if you get a new chip with the correct gearing, than you can use the trans.

However, the supercharged trans is stronger.

A new chip isn't the whole solution. The horsepower and torque curves of the two engines are different. Neither car would benefit from the opposite'* gear ratio for a daily driver.

Is there anything else thats swappable that I should take? Cam sensor, crank sensor, alternator, window motors, etc?

Anything that is just good to have around.
