You might even end up losing money doing a tranny swap. Buy one with the tranny you want. Trust me there is a hell of a lot of things you and your father can work on. It just makes more sense to buy one that has what you want in it fix it up/perfomancize it. Instead of shelling out bills for a manny tranny you could be doing cams/flywheel/turbo upgrade/etc. Trust.patteh said:Well, me an' dad want to get one so we can work on it... i'm kinda new at all this, so could you explain what is involved in changing the transmition?
It would be a huge pain. You'd need a pair of nonturbo exhaust manifolds and downpipes, to begin with. Installl those, remove the intercooler piping, reroute the intake piping directly from the MAF to the throttle bodies. You'll also need to cap the oil lines to the turbos that aren't there anymore, as well as the coolant lines. There may be other things I'm not aware of. It would be easier to buy an NA car now and trade it for a TT later.patteh said:o, definately, i'd be pleasesd with the shell of the body sitting on my lawn
Just there aint a great a great abundance of manual NA 300's over here.. not much choice in the matter.
whats involved in the removal of TT from a manual?
