I had the 4+3 in the Vette. while I had my Back surgery I had a friend put the 6 spd. in
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
By the way the 4+3 is a 4spd. with Overdrive. I got wore out rebuilding the OD Unit. The 350 I have is a lot hotter than stock!
The only cable I see not connected goes to either the Nuetral safety switch or ignition sw. ???
