    Default transmission conversion for '84

    can anyone link me to any articles/forums/tech about the conversion from a doug nash 4+3 to the ZF six speed manual?

    i'm trying to figure out how much the conversion is going to cost. -- i know there is a conversion process, but i can't find any "kit", or instructions, or labor estimates. if anyone knows anyone that has done this, any info would be greatly appreciated. all the transmission people i've talked to in my area will have nothing to do with it.

    plz help, my overdrive is about to fall right off and i'm tired of messin with it!!!111

    you might want to consider a T-5 swap, not nearly as strong as a 6 speed, but should be ok for a stocker and a lot less cost:

    I know this is a couple of months old, but browsing some old topics.

    I put the Richmond 6 speed in my '86:
