A donor car will always be your best bet to get all the little parts but you will still need more parts. I'm assuming you have a 1.5 car. Is it manual or auto? If manual, cable clutch or hydro?

in short if you have a 1.5 car you will need a different rear engine mount, timing belt mount and trans mount. You will also need colt specific axles. The 1.5 or dsm axles are not the right ones. You will either need to hardwire the dsm engine harness in, there are a few good write-ups in the archives. Or I've been making plug and play adapters for a while that I sell. I also modify rear engine mounts and trans mounts for the swap. You can buy the timing belt mount new at Rockauto cheap, look for a 94 Hyundai Elantra with the 1.8.

Look in the archive and read up a little, the info is all here. Post back if you get overwhelmed or just can't find what you're looking for and we'll be glad to help.
