1998 3.8 auto to manual swap help pls. Serious inquiry
I've recently acquired a fresh titled 98 by blown motor and auto trans, however I have perfect donor car with perfect motor and manual trans, 98 as well. Same year etc, so I've got all the parts. Few questions, first the auto car has an alarm as manual is just base model standard, is the alarm tied in with what I may need to swap? I was planning full motor tranny swap, so should I bypass auto wiring? Or bring over the manual harness? And in doing so swap ecus? will that affect alarm? I'd like to keep the alarm an electric key locks. and last question, I believe the keys are chipped, so do I have to change ignition etc, sorry for the wall of questions but any help is appreciated.
