Default 93 SSEi Series 1 SC to Series 2 NA

I was wondering how hard it would be to take a 93 SSEi and swap in a Series 2 NA motor? The reason is the series one has a knock in it and I don't feel like investigating it and would also like to be able to run it on 87 octane ( Gas is expensive and I'm in college) I know the 95 SE and SSE had the series 2 in it, so I know it can fit, but am unsure what I will need to do it. Will I need to get the PCM/Wiring Harness/Guage Cluster off a 95 to do this, or could I use the PCM and cluster off the existing car or engine? I'm assuming I'd need to get the PCM. I would be getting a newer (99+) series 2 if possible to change into it. I am looking for any advice, suggestions, facts, tips, etc. on the matter. Hopefully if it is not too involved I will be able to do this.

Thanks
Geoff

You are gonna need everything. Engine/tranny/harness/computer.
I think that it should bolt right up, well at least the tranny mounts.
It'* pretty expensive but it would be cool as hell.

Tranny is fine as long as it'* a 4T60E and you use a 96pcm. Still need the wiring harness.

Well, this would be a SSEi which I have found forsale cheap enough, but with engine problems, hence the engine questions. The SSE in the sig got sold and crashed(by new owner) just under 2 years ago . (I hear it might be back in running order) Anyways, I thought all SSEi has the 4T65HD tranny, or was that just after 96? Also, will the Series 2 L36 mate up with the 4T65HD Tranny without modification? Basically the concept for the final goal right now is a 93 SSEi with a 99+ L36 and a 99+ 4T65HD tranny. But like I said, I am unsure if this is possible and welcome any advice.

4T65E started in 1997.

The L36 will mate to it, but you need a 97 or newer PCM and wiring harness to support the combination.

I'd personally stick with a 96 L36 or L67 with the 4T60E. They're less troublesome, and last longer, not to mention being cheaper.

Speaking in whole engine terms, either the N/A or */C could be had for the same price in reality. I'd get the */C if i had to swap.

yeah, I have saw that they can, but being in college, I would barely be able to afford the swap, let alone the higher gas price.
