Alright guys, I'm looking to swap a Getrag 282 into my Notchie, because let's face it, the Duke isn't that much fun, and Auto trannies aren't going to help their cause.
I have looked through most of the stuff I'm going to need to swap it in but I still need a few parts I can't just buy at my local parts store.
What I need is the pedal assembly for a manual, and a shifter assembly. following the previously stated, I don't know if I can use any fiero shifter assy but I need one for a 5 speed, if the 4 speed one will work, I'll be fine with that.
I found the tranny on ebay, "Certified New" and I'm going to buy it because I haven't seen such a good deal in a long time. $400 shipping included. I've been looking things up and it's going to be about $1100 in total for the swap. (that's including the transmission itself)
if there is anyone that has the parts I need, please PM me, and I will get back to you within 24 hours.
Also, this will become my build thread once I start the swap.
That Getrag you are looking at on eBay is most likely a Quad 4 trans and will not fit the Duke engine.
It says Fiero in the listing, but it does say it's for the quad 4 engine. I purchased it last night, and now I am unable to locate the contact seller option. What is it that makes it so this transmission doesn't work with the Duke?
I also have been looking for a reasonably priced Manual Fiero for almost 3 years now, and I can't even find one that's been wrecked near me.
I have bought one of the $400 trans on ebay and it is in my living room. I can measure the bolt pattern for you if you like. I am going to use it to replace my failing Getrag for my 88 Formula. I will be swapping the bell housing so it will bolt up to my V6.
