No. The Ion works are mainly sealed within the firing can, with only the electrics and air works to be routed around the custom body.
I don't know what the insides of the Alpha Black are but the body of the 98 is part of the air works. To use 98 parts you would need to construct a body to seal and route the air system.

The Ion has been popular for MOD projects due to its simplicity and probably because of big sales and pretty reasonable pricing.
Check out anyhing by Oily, e.g. his M249, and his remote regulator.
It's important to remember that such a project will require working out how to place items into the body you are using, and solving problems such as the trigger, plus replaceing anything you have removed with the body.
The standard Ion trigger presses a microswitch on the circuit board, which means you must either fit the board behind the trigger in your project, or come up with a replacement switch.
The Ion regulator is fitted to the Ion main body/trigger frame, so if you move to a custom body you need some fittings. e.g. Oilys fittings to his remote regulator as above, or below there is a very different method used installing an Ion into a crossbow frame. (The crossbow solution was to chop up the Ion trigger frame keeping the regulator fittings & pressure guage attached to the regulator, and the trigger assembly together)

ASA to 1/8NPT will accept the regulator. You then need to get from 1/8NPT to the normal fittings of the Ion:
Either 1/8NPT male to 10/32 screwed directly into the above ASA adaptor
or 1/8NPT female to 10/32 and some 1/8 to 1/8 hose between the two components if you need to route it.
If you use the hose you can place the regulator anywhere - such as in the stock.
You will still need the Ions ASA attached to the regulator, but can extend it or shorten it with different hoses.
A project such as this will not normally have the air bottle attached and would normally have a remote line quick disconnect as the attachment point.
Either have the normal ASA inside your project connected to a remote fitting, or quick disconnect fittings are also available from Palmers and can be hosed directly to the regulator.
With just the above items you won't have a filter which is in the Ion frame fittings. (I don't know how necessary that is) Plus you won't have the pressure gauge on the marker, but it is possible to put back a pressure gauge with parts and fittings from Palmers.
Once you have removed the Ion trigger frame you do need parts to adapt the regulator to the internals. If you cut up the frame like the crossbow design you can do without custom parts, but it is unlikely to fit an airsoft body.
I was supposed to be working on a christmas project of making a non-electric Ion in a similar manner, but as I've been ill I have done none of the work so I am still in the theory stage with a box full of components.
(Still undecided on what I want to install it into so I am aiming for a very flexible components that I can put into a future body.)
