I was thinking of changing over from an automatic to a six speed tranny. Anyone do this or see it get done in a C-4? How difficult do you think it would b and where could I get the parts?

I would Guess Patrick is referring to me.

I did it in 1996.

If you have no mods done to the car, i would almost suggest selling your current car and buying a 6spd. If you still want to convert you will need:

Shop Maunal, as you have to rewire the reverse lights and Clutch Safety switch.

Clutch
Trans
Bellhousing
Clutch Hydraulics
Console plate for 6spd
Trans yoke
Section of tunnel cut from Donor car for conversion

My guess is this will cost between $3000 and $4000, depending on the Clutch you buy and how much you get a used trans for

Since you have a Dana 36 rear differential you can use your existing Driveshaft and 'C' beam.

If you want a Dana 44 add another $1200-$2000

Hope this helps

Thanks for the info Jeff,
Guess that puts an early end to that question. I will just have to go with a shift kit and the next vette can have a stick.:thumbsup:
