I put the MT285 6spd in my ZX3, they had to use the XCal II and some dyno time for the car to act right though.

an automatic SVT swap.... that doesn't even sound right, my friend goes to UTI, and some guy mentioned he bought an SVT sedan of the dealership, it has the bumper and all the looks, guess what? it is an automatic, but no SVT motor in it

why are you even trying this. jsut back out now. or take it to smoeone else and have the swap done right while you learn to drive stick. you'll never get that auto to work right with the svt mill. and you'll probably kill the tranny anyhow.

You dont pay someone to have sex with ur wife and then brag about how good she was....so why have someone work on your car and brag about how fast it is?
