All kits contain Necessary parts for installation, carburetor, manifold or adapter, linkage and air filter. All kits require minor installation modifications and basic mechanical skills and hand tools.
The tranny bolts right up, so that part is easy. However, the body was never meant to take it so there are some modifications to be made. This is a semi-common modification and I have emailed some people who have done it, but I have never actually seen a car with it done so some of this is playing by ear. Although cars in the UK came this way, it's a little more than a bolt-in conversion because the UK cars had the steering column through there and the whole area is different. The North American spec cars have a few obstructions that have to be removed. Post mortem: Now that it's all done and running, I have a lot of good things to say about the conversions. First of all the overdrive is predictably pretty darn nice, highway drives are now fairly peaceful and relaxed in OD 4th.
