    You can use the transmission you have, just make sure you use the stock engines mounts, y8 mount's wont work. you'll need an obd1 distributor though, as well as an obd0-obd1 ecu jumper and a stock p28, or a chipped obd1 ecu with a y8 basemap.

    not a prob. actually now that i think about it you can use the obd2 dizzy, but you have to swap the obd2 plugs for obd1 plugs.
