Information pulled together from several threads (thanks guys).

Rodney's information
http://www.rodneydickman.com/getraginfo.htm

Sometimes you'll find a Quad-4 Getrag that's too good to pass up (new or low miles)
(these are circa 1992 Getrag trannys - note location of arm on clutch fork)

You can have a transmission shop to change the bellhousing half of the Quad-4 Getrag transmisson.
You'll need the bellhousing from a V6 Getrag (you probably have a worn out V6 tranny anyway)
When you swap an original Fiero bellhousing, you'll only need the Cable Linkage Conversion Kit below.



Here's the scoop on parts needed for newer FWD V6 Getrag transmission as pictured above in our Fiero application.

In some cases you may have to split the case to change the gear for the VSS. (speedometer)
Dickman has the gear $25: http://rodneydickman.com/ca...h=28&products_id=330
Instructions http://www.rodneydickman.com/n36.html
With pictures http://centralfloridafieros...dex.php?topic=1119.0

You use this transmission with stock Fiero Getrag 5-speed shift cables and stock clutch slave cylinder.
Use the stock Fiero select cable bracket - or new one from Rodney if you don't have one. $24

http://www.rodneydickman.com/n13.html


You will need these FWD transmission conversion items from Rodney...
- cable linkage conversion kit $75
- shift cable bracket $67
- slave cylinder adapter $55

The bracket for the Select Cable will need to be bolted on.
The transmission already has pilot holes that need to be drilled and tapped for the bolts.

Here are close up pics of what has to be drilled, and one with the select bracket installed.
