Do a search. It's been done, but it's not quite that simple.

could u point me in the right direction.so what the not so eaasy part.the cable shifter or does the ecu require some kinda security key ? .ive got a tig stick machine and flux core welder so motor mounts and fabrication isnt to big of a deal.unless we are talking like hub swap or custom driveshafts that has to be made or some kinda precision manufactured piece.ive done a pretty through search and thats how ive come to conclude that it should work with the car just trying to figure everything out before i pull the trigger on getting parts rounded up by next year got 182k on the clock and i put about 30k to 40k a year on it so it wont be long before i will have her worn out.
