81 TA auto to manual swap question
« on: December 09, 2020, 02:49:16 PM »
Hello all  i've been doing a lot of research to swap out my auto to manual on my 81 TA. I have sourced out pretty much all the parts . The engine i have in it is 69 400 which i had in my GTO. The question is can I use the M21 with The the hurst shifter that came out of my 68 GTO or do i need a shifter specific to a firebird ? Also are there any other specific parts i need for the m21 install ? thx in advance

Not sure on the shifter, but I would assume you would need a 70-81 shifter if you want it in the factory position. Everything else should be straight forward.
81' (78 clone), House of Kolor Jet Set Black, Pontiac 400 built by DCI Motorsports, FiTech EFI, Tremec 6 speed, 3.73 rear, YearOne 17" snowflake, Pro Touring F-body GT shocks/springs, hydroboost, factory 4 disc, Ram Air Resto + Thrust transverse exhaust.
