    its going to be hard lots of stuff to replace..since your going from a manual to a Auto i think the computer needs to be replaced but dont quote me on it...its going cost some money im sure of that...i have done the whole auto to manual but never the other way around and i will never do it agian but why do you want to change it over anyways

    Too bad we don't live close. I have a complete LS1/A4 setup from an 02 Firebird with 27k on it I'm transplanting into a 94 Z and have to find a T56 to replace the A4.

    We could have swapped
