Transmission swap

Recommended Posts

We have discussed upgrades/swapping of motors to great extent. I am wondering if there might be a 5 speed transmission out there that we could install in our cars that might give us a bit more punch off the line and maybe with the extra gear even better gas mileage on the top end. And as an added benefit maybe a little heavier built to handle "hole shots".

 Any ideas?

I think DANIEL as well as couple of others have made a conversion to a manual 5 speed. I would love to have a 5 speed manual in my convertible if I could make it look like it was originally made that way.

Seems like someone was running the manual trans out of a G6 GT V6. They ended up using some sort of strange axle(G6 inner splines and Buick outer?) I wanna say that was Daniel but I'm not sure.

All the newer auto transmissions (strong enough for the 3800) seem to be a bit big for our platform.

I am not sure if gm ever did a five speed fwd auto. I have not looked.
