    Look on eBay - you can get the entire “swap” which includes the 10R80, shifter mechanism, proper harnesses, driveshaft, plus applicable trans modules. Not sure if the pedal set is included but you will need that as well.

    Once you get the hardware swap completed you will then need to do multiple software updates to the vehicle.

    Oh and if you’re doing it - document it here with pics and the process, it will surely benefit others.

    Is this one of those cases where it may be easier to start with an A10 GT and respray and add parts to turn into a Bullitt-alike? Cosmetic stuff is usually a lot less potential grief than electronics....

    OP indicates that he already has a real Bullitt so for him it might be easier to swap out the tranny. Honestly I wonder why someone hasn’t already done this. The only thing that kept me out of one was the 6 speed, bad knee. I’m sure there are others. Building a fake Bullitt just wouldn’t be the same.

    The cutting edge is the bleeding edge. It can be done.

    It will cost you a pound of flesh though. Very interested to see a write up.

    I feel your pain, both figuratively and literally. I test drove one and found the clutch relatively light but after a short time realized that I just couldn’t do it. You might want to checkout the Steeda clutch spring. Many here on the forum swear by it. Good luck.

    i appreciate it . Its not a heavy clutch thats not the problem its the burning and numbness ,i actually tryed to see if the dealer would take the car back with a 2500$ loss with only 34 miles on the car the next day but they were like nope we will give you 44k I almost drove it through the showroom . If my I had someone to take care of my Dog i would have !!!

    You're going to have more than $10k in a trans swap. Taking it back to the dealer will be the cheapest option.

    I am sorry that the car is not working out for you. I am also excited to see what Frankenstein monster comes out of this. But I do not think it should ever be offered in auto #McQueen
