A mechanic blew my automatic transmission that was in my car by installing my torque converter wrong, I have a spare AWD transmission from Japan that came with the car, Can this fit and work in my car? I have FWD

May I ask what model needs to be done? Is it expensive?

I'm not sure the extent of damage, but its probably easier to just replace the front pump on the trans he damaged.

Yes - I just made a post about my car that was done over 15 years ago. There is some modification.

Since it is a bigger trans it is worth the effort from my experience

I had a converted TT 5 speed in my 1994 RT FWD when we converted to TT. The TT 5 speed is a couple lbs heavier, and geared taller. I know there has been a couple of the AWD to FWD converted trannies mentioned over the years. It may not be breeze, but can be done and it'll hold up a whole lot better than the NA auto.

Someone on here should know where to find info on the conversion.

Once again... Nobody is trying to, or talking about swapping in a Getrag.

He asked about using an AWD W4A33 Auto in his FWD that came with an F4A33.
