    Firsty, I know this is not a Jeep site but I am going to be swapping GM parts so I thought I would ask here

    I am going to be taking the 2.8L out of my 85 XJ and putting in a 34.L
    My question is what transmission/tcase should I go with?
    I have a 5 speed in it right now and thought about swapping in an auto
    Another question, would a TH350 bolt up to the 3.4?
    I have access to a good TH350 cheap is the reason I am thinking the TH350

    Thanks for any advice
    Bruce

    no he does mean a 3.4l it is another 60deg v-6 found in later model camaros. You will need to get a different belhousing on the th if it was on a v8 but your 5spd will bolt right up. I did this conversion on my 85 s-10 blazer. Edlebrock makes a high rise 2piece manifold that you can bolt a 4bbl on and it works great.
