Kit; http://www.ebay.com/itm/SWorkz-S350-...item20e3865e95

Do you need battery, ESC, and motor suggestions?

no I am good with motor and esc parts I would just make sure the battery was stronger than my two wheel drives are. I am only stuck on getting the conversion kit so that I can mount a electric motor and esc

You would need a 4S, or 2S in series, at least.

again as I said I don't need help with battery selection or motor selection it is precisely that I need help finding the sworkz conversion kit that converts the nitro buggy I mentioned above to the electric counterpart

I know it's a factory conversion kit but $195 US is awfully steep. I wonder if the chassis accepts any other conversion kit motor mounts as that would cut the cost by well over half.
