What year Cutlass, if it's '94 or newer it's actually a 3100, I don't remeber off hand when the Cutlass received what engine through the years.

The 4 speed will be a feat in itself to get to work in your car, again depending on the year will determine how much extra work needs to be done.

The 4 speed is quite a bit larger than the TH125 (3 speed), the output splines are different sizes, and tranny mounts will most likely need to be custom, among other details I'm probably forgetting.

Yes a '92 will be the gen2 design, the 3.1.

BTW, a 3.1 is a 3.1 regardless of what tranny it is connected to (I'm talking about same generation).
