I don't know what would have to be done with the tune, but a solid DOWN -grade.

There mech trans so it be no different than a manual swap. Be useless unless it was a drag only car.

Vastly stronger transmission. The internals mass also skims a lot of power right off the top, even relative to a TH350. For a street car it's pointless because you don't need the strength. For a drag car(or a truck) sure; bolt it in and have whatever changes made that are necessary in tune.

And it will work great on the street, but kiss your highway MPG goodbye.


Do not go gentle into that good night.

since you have a 95 i think it may be possible to swap a 4l80e though and have your stock pcm control it. im not a 100% but seems like that works in the trucks so it should in yours.
