Boxster Ignition swap Question??

Hi Guys, got a question.

I have a 97-01 Boxster and only have the little crappy Valet key for it..... it sucks!

I was wondering if I can find someone parting out a Boxster and take there actual good key and ignition components and swap them onto my car??

What parts would I all need from the parted Boxster for this swap to successfully work??

Don't you also need

the security control module and some dealer programming?

Can't the dealer just sell you some keys and reprogram your security control system? Not cheap.

You can buy ...

... a new key head and just replace the blade and the transponder into it.
Or, the dealer can cut you a new key and then program it into your car.
No need to replace tumblers.
Happy Boxstering,
