Will a Xt 4x4 4spd auto tranny bolt up in place of a 4x4 3spd auto in a GL-10 sedan? Will I need the driveline? Will the pistol auto shifter fit? any info would help.

Should Be a Direct swap in...:)

Only thing you will need to do is re-adjust the shift rod underneath at the tranny......Not sure if you can swap the Pistol style XT shifter or not, But I do know the Tranny will swap in.....Make sure to keep converter with tranny....

Later, John.....

You will also need the tranny brain and all the associated crap as the $ speed is an electronically controled trans.

No no no!! This is NOT an easy job at all! The 3AT is hydraulically controlled, with no external control mechanisms. The 4AT is totally electronic. You'll need the transmission control computer. You'll also need all the wiring attached to it, which is almost as thick as the main wiring harness. The shifter is different, and it also has the 1Hold button. Is the car an 86 or earlier model? If so, the trans won't even fit! In 87 they widened the trans tunnel to make room for the 4EAT's bulk. 86 and older cars do not have enough physical space for this transmission.

Just a couple things to think about. It's easier to just convert to manual. Sounds like a daunting task, but I've seen the Subaru Alliance crew do it in a weekend with time to spare.
