The engine, transmission, EIS (ignition switch), throttle (accelerator) pedal, relevant wiring loom(s) also have to be on the list, and possibly the air conditioning unit, as they all talk to each other over the CAN bus. The EIS and the ECU (engine control unit) are encrypted to each other so one doesn't work without the other.
You may be up for a lot of diagnostic work just to be able to strat the engine, never mind move the car. And the ABS (anti skid braking) and ESP (Electronic stability program) also talk to the engine and transmission, or not, so there goes your safety!
I don't think it is feasible....
