    OK, I'm gonna ask the same question...WHY?
    You want a tranny that will regularly fail and cost you a kings ransom to fix...and on top of that you want to pay a shop to remove one of GM's strongest trannies ever built?

    I don't get it...unless you can't drive a standard.[​IMG]

    I did it myself just make sure you have all the pieces first and keep all the pieces you remove cus you will be able to sell it to someone who likes to crawl around...

    The easiest way to do this swap would to be calling a place like Jet or Boetie overdrives and getting a complete kit to do the swap. You will need to locate a t-case, shifter, and might want to change the pedal assembly.
