    4.9 Caddy engine.  Matter if auto or manual?

    I am looking for a 4.9 caddy engine.. and they always ask alot of questions.. If my fiero is manual.. should i look for a manual engine? or can i get a auto 4.9 and install it into my manual 84 fiero?

    I don't think there ever were any standard transmission Cadillac's with 4.9s...

    I know they can be done, there are several on PFF that have manual transmissions on their 4.9s. I've driven an automatic 4.9, and that was insane... I personally think a 4.9 on a 4spd manual, would be ridiculous.. far too much torque to be streetable, in an automatic it almost lifted the front wheels off the ground, with the taller gearing of a 4spd, it would probably be able to do small wheelstands without much trouble.

    Scorpiox, you also can use the fiero auto tranny.... it bolts right up to the caddy engine... have you looked through bubbajoe's site yet? If not, I'm sure allot of your answers will be answered there. I will be a putting a 4.9 in my car, after she is painted... Here his BubbaJoe's links...
