Whats up man...I don't have an answer for your question unfortunantely but i was wondering where you are getting your tranny from? MY reverse gear makes this incredibly loud click noise when i back up..my mechanic told my the reverse is screwed.
If you could help that would be great!

Re: 2.0 tranny? (GTiTES)

I am fairly certain it will bolt up. However, you will be looking at different gear ratios - a much deeper (lower) ratio of 4.20. You will be a lot faster off the line, but will be spinning high on the freeway. This is something I have looked into as well. $200 is hard to pass up, though. If you don't want to mess with the ratio problem, let it go. Let me know if you don't. I might want it for another project.
