save up and do it right man.. i was a broke college student and have made nearly the same mistake 3 times now with another car.. 4 years out of college now and i still have a half-assed trans am on the side of my house :lol:

just my .02c :)

It will work but you'll need to find all the V6 5 speed motor mounts, your auto ones won't work and i doubt the 2.2 ones will be even close.

the GTZ gears are actually in a HM282 tranny which is the same case as the V6 HM282.. so no, they won't fit in your isuzu tranny. Sorry

so if i got the whole GTZ trans, would i be able to jsut put that in since its in the same case as the V6 trans, cuz i hear of people swapping the gears, but never just puttin a gtz trans to their 3.1, so im assuming not. would that be possible?
again, thanks for all the help, i realize i have a lot of questions and i apprecite all the help i can get.

i have a whole GTZ tranny in my Z... trust me, behind a 3.1 it'll be a complete waste of time and money. You'll have to split the case and attach a HM282 V6 Bell housing.. if you've never done tranny work before then you probably shouldn't mess with that part, it can be tricky.

those gears are made to keep a high RPM engine in it's power band, like the quad 4, and 3x00's.. you'll probably blow up the 3.1 with it :lol:
