Pretty expensive to upgrade. I would think about trading the vehicle.

    That sounds funny, how DO you upgrade to a V6?

  • lesterallen Nov 22, 2008

    Then you would, no doubt, have swapped it out with the intention of replacing it with a V6, right?

Swapping from and automatic to a manual transmission in a 99-04 mustang 3.8L

cam it -double turbo it and upgrade the chip and you will get almost as much as a partially worked V8. As to the swap it would be easier to get a manual rolling shell and put all your mechanics in it as to change the body of an automatic to a manual. Clutch pedal and all the brackets---clutch master and slave cylinder and lines . Cut a hole in the floor tunnel to take the gear lever. different rear engine mounts and cross member--- different tail shaft. Good idea if you have lots and lots of dollars, are really mechanically minded, have lots of time and perseverance and want a car that will do you proud and not be a piece of half finished junk. Not a good idea if you are none of the above. However if you want a car that goes , crank, rods .pistons , worked heads , a properly designed cam, valves chip , upgraded injectors twin turbos ( each at 2.5 litre capacity ) turning the engine to equal a 5 litre capacity engine, 2.000 RPM stall converter , 3" exhaust system. Built professionally should set you back around $10.000 American and you will have a car that you can be proud of. Your choice.

What trans do I have in my 91 sierra

The turbo 350 and 400 were both good transmissions but they also did not have an over-drive and were limited to only three forward gears. Life was much more simple back then before computer controlled engine and powertrain management systems, and either one of those transmissions could be adapted to your vehicle, however the transmission currently in your vehicle is controlled by either a transmission control module or the ECM, (Electronic Control Module) and although a 700R4 will also bolt up to the vehicle and is also electronically controlled and has an over-drive, it would not connect up to the wire connector in your vehicle, and dis-connecting the wire connector(s) going to the transmission and not connecting them to anything in order to install a turbo 350, a turbo 400, or a 700R4 would not make the control unit or ECM very happy, and it would cause an MIL (Malfuction Indicator Light) to come on and it will either be the "Check Engine Light" or a transmission/powertrain malfunction light (depending on if the system has the transmission connected through the ECM or a transmission control module).

To keep the R/R a simple process with matching up the same wire connector(s) for the transmission, and to keep the control unit or ECM happy and the transmission functioning properly, it is highly recommended that the transmission that is in the vehicle be replaced with the same transmission, preferably from a similar vehicle between 1990 and 1992.

If the transmission in your vehicle has 16 bolts holding the transmission oil pan then the transmission is a 4L60E.

If the transmission oil pan has 17 bolts holding it then the transmission is a 4L80E.

Chevy S-10 upgrade

You need a donor vehicle, or a good junk yard. You will need an engine from a 95 up V6. You will need the complete engine, wiring harness, ECU, and harness. You will need the radiator and motor mounts, You should go ahead with the transmission swap also, being the 4 cyl.trans will be a bit weak for the v6. Look for the 3.4 v6 if you can find one. This swap from a Camaro is a good choice. The engines from the a Comaro are a bit beefier. What ever car you get your engine from, be sure to get as much wiring and all electronics as you can. Now if you do not have any Emissions problems where you live you will not need the ECU's or the wiring to go with them. You can run a carb engine and the swap will be a lot easier. You can get a manifold from Summit and a carb. and have plenty of power then. Good swapping.

4l60e tranny swap

No the 4l60e is a electronic transmission you need to find a 700r4 transmission which are very common. Check with your local junk yards and are pretty easy to install. About a full days worth of work for a person with general know how of vehicles.

Tranny upgrade - 2000 tiburon

To my knowledge, there is NOT. You'd have to swap out the entire Powertrain (a later MY 2.7 V6) and wire harness and PCM (Powertrain Control Module).
