1700 will probably not be enough to get a tii or to get an NA and swap it. Maybe just go ahead and find an NA and keep saving to get enough to do the swap.

for the engine swap you will need the engine and turbo, you will probably want to rebuild before you install it. then you will also need everything flywheel back from a turbo: fw, tranny, shaft, diff, and half shafts.

no you don't need every TII drivetrain component. If you get the TII tranny, also an option (recommended if you are looking to make more than 250hp), you can buy Mazdatrix Non-Turbo with Turbo Transmission and then use you NA rear end and half shafts.

Also, expect to buy the ECU, pressure sensor, AFM... check this out:
