No way in hell this can happen-- you need a transaxle, not a RWD transmission. The trans just won't fit, and even if it did, you'd need a transfer case and diff to make it work.Originally posted by pimpin90GL@Apr 20 2004, 03:55 PM
well swapping a manual in there would certainly void your warranty. If you MUST put a manual in there, (i'm just taking a wild guess here) wouldn't the tranny (manual) from a V-6 mustang work? i know the 'stang is RWD, and a longitudialy mounted engine, but it might work. it will involve ALOT of time and money, neither of which a college student has in abundance (not criticizing, i'm right there with you) if you do go for it though, then i wish you best of luck.
I don't see where the FWD would matter for a flywheel/clutch combo. Since the T-Bird had a 3.8 with a manual, the flywheel and pressure plate part should be fine. Then a disc with a spline that mates to the tranny of choice.Originally posted by americasfuture@Apr 21 2004, 01:47 AM
the gen 2 SHO MTX-4 will fit the 3.8. only the major problem for that is, to my knowlage there is no fwd car that came with a 5speed 3.8. so there is no clutch flywheel combo. and if anyone has been reading my posts, then they know that i have been doing my research.
