My son has been driving an 88 gl auto. We are considering swapping this with a 5 spd manual. How big a job? We have pulled a few motors and 1 xmsn, replaced head gaskets etc. Are there hidden nightmares lurking about? How large a job in comparison to engine swapping?
Just signed on today to the service.
What a great source.
tnx

This is basically the same swap, just need to get the pedal box, clutch cable, tranny xmember and strut caps. Is it 2wd or 4wd?

You will need to have the diff match the tranny ratio, should be 3.9.
