Q: Engine/Tranny Swap on 1993 Chevrolet Camaro

I have a 93 V6 5-speed, and the transmission may be about to go out. If I have to have it fixed, i would probably have to take out a loan, so im thinking about just taking out a loan enough to buy a z28 engine and transmission, and just put it in. What im wondering is how much ballpark will it cost to get ahold of everything i need. I have seen on craigslist, as low as 1200 together, but i dont think i would be that lucky to find near me. Where is a good place to look (aside from a junkyard) for dealers of rebuilt or salvaged engines and transmissions?
