They're different for V6s, and the same for V8s.

Your only options to get cheapies are 1) from the wreckers (good luck) or 2) from ebay (good luck!)

On the brighter side. If you use a dual mass VS flywheel mirror balanced to your auto flex plate, or you use one of those converter kit flywheels that bolt up to your flex plate then you won't need to change starter motors.

Still need the manual starter with the flexplate adapting flywheels.. The auto starter has a nose bit on the end which doesnt fit in the bellhousing. Ive tried :) lol

But that was out of curiousity and had a manual starter at hand lol. So yes, the manual starter works on the auto flex plate.
