My GT came with an automatic. How strong are these trannys? I am thinking about the 3.4 engine swap sometime next year and dont know what tranny if I go that route. Feedback please on manual or auto trannys... including how difficult to swap. Thank you

If the floor pans are the same for the manuals and the autos... Is there a difference in the tranny mount? and I would assume that there is a different console also? Any other diffs (beside flexplate vs torque converter!)

I would go with the 700 R4 if I decided to keep it an auto... I would love to swap in a T5 but am unsure as to the mods to put the T5 in my auto console. I realize that either way the drive shaft needs to be shortened and I have read about this in other posts.

Also the clutch pedel needs to be added.

Sorry about the cross member thing opelgt73, I read your reply too fast and missed it. Thanks

The 3.4 I am refering to is a 93-97 Camaro engine. Sorry I wasn't clear.

What is the "Yahoo classic oples list" that opelgt73 referenced?

The documentation I am going off of is what Mike Pilkenton put together regarding his 3.1L GM V6, Borg Warner T-5, Mustang-Eating Opel Gt paper. In this paper he said the the T-5 matches up the Opel auto cross member well but did not document if any interior console mods were necessary.

Anybody know how to get ahold of Mike Pilkenton?
