    What are the odds of putting a 1999 auto engine in a 1998 SL2 stick
    shift?

    It should bolt right in and run fine as there was no big chages in
    engine or its controls.

    I would agree - but in 99 I believe there WERE sizeable changes made. They
    made the change to the roller-valvetrain narrower head in '99, but not for
    the entire year if I recall correctly. This could be made to work in a '98,
    but it would require a lot of the '99's accessories which are different
    (exhaust manifold, intake manifold, throttle body, air intake system, etc).

    You may be able to find more info in the TSN swap guide:

    Good luck

    THis would be easy to confirm with a visual too.
