    Auto trans to manual swap

    Hi, would like to swap the 5spd Getrag trans to an automatic trans in my Countach replica. Right now, the 5spd is mounted to a TPI V8 (vintage 1990), may consider engine swap also. Any suggestions? thanks

    My suggestion.....DON'T DO IT.
    By doing that it will decrease resale value and driving enjoyment.

    Agreed. Mine is automatic; I'd sell it if yr interested.

    For an auto swap, you'll need a transmission oil cooler and lines, different shifter cables and a you need to disable the start switch on the clutch pedal. You should install a neutral start switch on the shifter.

    If you do decide to go automatic, I'd consider one of the 4T60 family of transmissions that come with the Cadillac V8s and the 3800SC's.
