Does anybody know if any of the f23 transmission cars came with jack shafts so that equal length axles can be run to avoid torque steer?

I don't know about the F23, but most of the 3.1L cars with the 282 Getrag had intermediate shafts. So with some work, you could adapt one of those.

Fieros, with the engine in the rear, don't experience torque steer like the FWD cars do.

Exactly. The rear wheels don't steer. So torque steer is a non-issue.

I'm actually doing the swap on my 01 Grand Prix. Sorry if I should have posted in the other vehicles section but since it's 3800 5 speed related I figured it was close enough.

I already have asked around on some Grand Prix forums but the only 5 speed swaps that are well documented are 284 5 speeds and a "failed" F40 swap.

The Fiero community seems to be the best place to go for anything past ordinary customization. Especially if it's mating 3800's to 5 speeds.

Thanks for the info on the 282 intermediate shaft. I guess I should have thought of that since you can use stock fiero axles with the f23.

I don't know much about them, but what about the Saturn Vue 5 speed?

they use an ecotec pattern f23 with some crazy ratios.

Jackshafts have been done on F40's... they are nothing special other than just a bracket to hold it...

Yeah, do they have a jackshaft though? If so, compatible spline form and count with 2.2 style F23?
