WHY ARE YOU TYPING IN ALL CAPS???



if you are compentent enough to do a clutch change then you can convert an auto car over to 5spd, the hardest part of the swap is installing the pedal assembly.

Put a built C4 or AOD in the car and you will throw rocks at a 5 speed

I just got done doing this same thing. There is a ton of good info on the net.. I agree that the hardest part is doing the pedal swap. Also you will need a t-5 crossmember, exhaust hanger, output yolk, and reverse light wire harness. Also if your car was an original auto, you will have to open the shifter hole in the body a little so the shifter will clear.. You need to reuse the auto computer (A9P) with t-5.. You also need to move the speedometer cable to a different hole through the firewall so the clutch cable can come through where the speedo cable was originally.

i didnt need any of the bolded parts, the crossmember can be used by grinding the spot welds loose and adjusting it to where you need it to be.

the yoke on the driveshaft is the same

and my reverse harness plugged right into my t5, after i disconnected the extension harness from it, all my backup lights etc work perfect

You can grind and reweld the cross member, but if he can get it off the other car?? Less work..

I swapped to a 28 spline tko i wasn't sure if AOD and t-5 were interchangeable..

Once again, if he can get the 12" long brake light harness off the donor car.. Why not?

I agree. I just had an AOD built with custom convertor and with just H/C/I the car flat out rips now.

Wink

Put a small stall converter and a stage 2 shift kit in that auto, you'll probably change you mind about the swap
