A couple of things, the dual range 4spd has to be mated with it's larger bellhousing that is on the 1800 motor in the '83 car, the 1600 in the gen 1 brat is way smaller bellhousing, but they swap, or keep the 1800 and the d/r...
The transmission mounts will have to be moved, but that's just a bolt change I think? Or get a D/R out of a 80 or 81 brat... the shift linkage will fit, but you will have to cut a hole in the trans tunnel to get the d/r shifter in place.
The body lift will bolt up in the front no problem, in the back you will have to fabricate an entirely new setup, the 77-81 brats have a dual rear torsion tube setup.
lifted gen 1's are rare, good luck[/quote]
