It really matters how far you would like to go. If you want or need it to be originally stock, that will cost the most. As long as you use the same automatic made for this engine it should basically bolt right up. You would need to fabricate automatic shift linkage to go through the existing hole or go getting a steering column for factory look. The biggest thing would be replacing the PCM with that for an automatic. You will also need a wiring harness from an automatic vehicle. This might include additional fuses in the distribution block as well. If you can find a doner vehicle with almost everything you need that would be the easiest route. With enough money in your budget and time you can make it look as nice as you would like.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
