    Tony,

    Good luck. Simply not available. I re-did the interior on my 84 in 2006. It had the houndstooth sport seat cloth, which I liked very much. I lucked out finding another set of great seats from a part...

    I had an 84 when new and owned it for 24 years. I thought about swapping in a TPI unit, but frankly there was little to no gain to be had. It's much more straightforward to port the manifold, maybe...

    Why oh why don't they bring back Deep Purple and Black Rose as colors for the C7? Great colors on the C4 especially the ZR.

    If not for the trans tunnel requiring some fabrication and modification, the ZF is a very straightforward upgrade since it was an OEM trans starting in 90(?). So everything else is just stock.

    The trans tunnel will need to be modified regardless of which trans is used. I posted some pics in a previous thread. The ZF retains a stock look and uses all stock pieces.

    Tony,

    When I did this, I had to modify the trans tunnel because of how the 4+3 shifter is mounted, which sucks IMO. So I grafted part of a 90 tunnel since the ZF-6 has an internal rail setup.

    All the reasons why when my clutch gave out on my 84, I ditched the Doug Nash and TRANSplanted

    If you're going to replace it, then do an LSx motor. Upgrade rear end to D44. Having said that, maybe you might want to think about ditching the 82 and buying a C4 ZR-1. You can buy one for just...

    I owned my 84 4+3 for 24 years and I never drove it in OD until I was out cruising and in 4th.
    2nd and 3rd OD were sort of useless IMO.
