    Trans. Help............

    eeexotic gave me a great site to look on for the 4 cyl. to the 6 cyl. swap but It mentioned not being able to mate the 6 cyl. to the 5 speed trans. Well my problem is I have the five speed trans. Do any of you guys know of a company that has come up with an adapter plate for this to be accomplished?

    Re: Trans. Help............

    If the engines are both Fiero, the trans will fit. If the new replacement engine is a GM with a BOP (Buick Olds Pontiac) bolt pattern, the trans will fit. The issue you might face will be in the area of the flywheel. You will need to get a standard flywheel to fit the engine. Use a Luk clutch package for a 6 cylinder HO on either engine. The HO will have 6 springs on the pressure plate, the others have 4 springs.

    I will dig up additional information for you if you email me. newmdav@ispwest.com

    Hope this helps,

    Dave
