Ok so before you flame me about using the search feature trust me I have and I have found a few very helpful threads regarding the swap from an auto v6 to a manual v6 but there are some questions that I have that I can't seem to find the answers to no matter how much I search. My MAIN question is this, doe's the DONOR car HAVE to be another v6 or can it be a manual inline 4? To further go into detail of my question I mean are the parts that are required for the swap engine specific (minus tranny, flywheel, clutch) meaning can I use the brake booster and master/slave cylinders from my I4 in my swap or do they have to be from another v6? Basically here is my deal, I have my daily which is a manual inline 4 and I recently picked up an M edition LS v6 with a blown auto tranny so I am planning on using my inline 4 as my parts donor car for the swap. Any help on this will be GREATLY appreciated!!! And on a side question, the LS I picked up is in almost perfect shape except for the blown auto tranny and rust along the roof near the sun roof. I plan on doing a complete sun roof delete so my question is, is it possible to remove the roof in its entirety to replace it with another? The rust goes all of the way through the upper panel but doesnt leak into the cab of the car it just goes through to the watter drain lower part which has no rust. Thanks for any help recieved!!!
