Looks like the engine in question might be designed for a manual trans. What the difference is I don't know.

There is also the issue of cam postion sensors changing over the years. Possible to use the old ones?
See pic.

Current engine has a knock and a bad miss possibly a valve issue, it would be cheaper for me to drop this engine in then rebuild.

It's Also just a auto both the current engine and the crate are on 5speed autos
Thanks for the replys
