Search. It is discussed almost daily somewhere in this site. The C6 came in just about everything and you can get the 2wd tranny from any small block car or truck. For the driveshaft, you will have to measure. I think it should cross from the manual to the auto.

There should be plenty of info on this in the 80-96 forum as well.

collin, 351w from car or truck is the same. is the 302 different from mustangs to broncos? (not counting the cam, which i believe is different) then no, it doesn't matter, C6, same thing, same in the car as in the truck. just find a C6, and bolt the fawker up.

:stupid it'd be the same thing from auto to manual. it's just you gotta switch everything around. it's not that hard.

do i need to change the tork converter too?

if you need to ask that, when swapping to manual to automatic, you should just bring it somewhere and say "put a c6 in it."

Considering the manual doesnt have a tork (or Torque for the rest of us) converter
