Please Help...thinking of a 6 speed swap

i have an 88 GTA... the car was originally a 305/ 5 speed car, t-tops........some hill billy dropped a 350 in....didnt know this when i bought the car..... the engine blew once had another one put it.. the rear end went.. had that fixed......car still has original 5 speed.... but its acting up. im thinking of putting a 6 speed in. can anyone tell me what i might need to do, like new rear end, clutch...and if it would even bolt up. please help.... i dont wanna sell the car but if i can get this transmission problem fixed it might be worth keeping. thanks

Re: 6 speed

I used to have a detailed job description for swapping in a 6 speed... you'll need to buy an aftermarket tranny cross member, or make one yourself. I'll look for that website for ya.

6 speed

How did you get the Electronic speedo to work for ya? Did you use a control box (cyberdyne) or have it converted by JTR.
