    dizzy=distributor, you can pull the whole thing but trans won't work its cable yours is hydro. comp. won't work, cv's won't work. you will have to change the motor mount bracket thats in the middle of the timing belt use your 95 one. and you will have to use the thermostat housing from the 95 too.

    both cars are complete. the drogon is a vtech the lx is just a pooey 16 valve. it would be a shame to have to leave both not just one with that said.. the lx is an auto. i was gonna just go with the flow of things and see but it seems theres more to than just a swap.. i was gonna use the motor tranny computer.. is there really that big of a difference of a stance like cv wise

    just find another 5spd trans. it would be a pain in the ass to make it into a auto.. and the 88 auto won't work in a 95 frame..
