Hi, I just bought an 86 gt with about 50k miles on it. It runs great but has an auto trany. I know where I can get a low mileage 6-speed from a G6 3.5L. My question is what would be involved in the transmission swap? I want to keep the 2.8 as it is strong and I don't drive that fast. I just want to swap tranys.

Thanks in advance for your input.

Doing an auto to F 40 stick swap is a big job. You will need the transmission, the clutch, the fork, a flywheel, throwout bearing, shift cables, modified shift arms, the shifter itself, trans cable bracket, clutch pedal/bracket, the safety switch, the back up light switch, the clutch master cylinder, the slave cylinder, the hydraulic lines and some hardware. Its been done before but I would consult with someone that has completed this.
A much easier solution that gives you a forth gear is to bolt in a 4T60 automatic but if you have to have 6 speeds and a stick then start gathering up all the parts and be prepared to do some fabrication and hours of work.
