I changing out a C6 (in spring) for a np435. Not because the C6 ever had and problems, but because I want a stick. the C6 is in my opinion the best automatic ford ever made.

2˝" true duals. If strait pipes are to loud for the local police, tone it down with a pair or 2 chamber flowmasters or chambered thundersticks.

california sucks.

when i got my 83, first thing i inquired about was dual exhaust. i was told by a good exhaust shoppe nearby, it couldn't legally be done, due to having two cat's, (a pre and main). maybe it is something just for calif emissions vehicles. anyway, the shoppe said i could go with 3" pipe after the cat for a more throaty sound. might be my next move.

Both my pipes (2 1/4")run down the passenger side to clear the transfercase, there are 2 16" glasspacks, they cross over the rearend then split and exit on each side behind the rear wheels.

Well, I don't know waht the stock hp is.
Just for info, the 460 was not an option on the broncos, the guy must of dropped it in there.
I think about 8-10 MPG

The diffs, should have 90w and if any limited slip or traction control, then it should have a friction modifyer.

To swap from a C6 to an NP435, he needs the bell housing, clutch, flywheel, etc., all the linkage (or hydraulics if it's hydraulic), the pedals, the pedal rod, and the floor pan. Or, you can cut a hole in your current floor pan and floor mat/carpet.

It's some work, but it's doable.

My pleasure!

Here's a detailed picture writeup I did of the swap.

Considering I was changing out the clutch and transmission for an entirely different setup, I can't see very many differences between what I did, and what would need to be done to go from an auto to a manual.

1981 Ford Bronco NP435 Swap

The only other things I can see are A) Removing the auto shifter from the column. And B) putting a clutch onto the engine.
