5 spd from 318 1984/5

The supply of 245's is getting thin. Anyone have a 2002 with a later 240 from a 318 installed? I know someone wanting to make a kit and wants to see a car with one installed.

 

Have heard it is easiest when converting automatic as the tunnel is already bigger, is that true|?

 

Thanks

It should fit with no problems, but there's no speedo drive so you'll have to set up either an electronic or GPS-based one.

True statement--no "percussive modification" to the tunnel housing is necessary.

In and done, the only real hitch was the Speedo, for that I just used a GPS unit.

Much more economical than a 245.

 

Kit I purchased off CL $350.00, drive shaft and shifter modified

Damn, I asked about a 240 trans at least 4 times and the only definitive answer I got was about the frickin' speedo drive. I thought we had a Pasadena brotherhood thing goin' Chargin:)

I've got one I'm not gonna use also.
