1) 2003 and 2004 ion SEDANS were offered with a 5 spd manual and a 5 spd automatic
2) 2003 and 2004 Ion COUPES had the above choices, and an additional choice of a CVT tranny.

If the 04 is a coupe with the CVT run like hell. Guaranteed to fail

If it is not,

What does he need, Goalie?

CVT is garbage.
It should bolt right up to your tranny.
If you have any issues, let me know. I have extra parts.

might he run into a sticky situation if the good engine from the manual is different from the bad engine w the automatic? Trouble w PCM in receiving car thinking it's controlling a 2.2 when it's really a 2.4? I would hope they are the same PCM hardware with a different flash....

(Sorry, I'm an evil case kind of thinker)

If anything, just a different flash on the pcm if I recall.
I have an 04 pcm from a manual tranny car I can sell.
