This is for those that may know...mostly about the Opel Ecotec and their Getrags....
Will a 6-speed Getrag from a European Ecotec bolt up to an American 2.2 Ecotec? Also, would there be any problems with wiring/electronics?
I'm sure I could find several trannys around from the newer Opels and I know they have 6-speeds in them but wondering if you could actually hook it up and it work electronics wise!?
Any help? I think I may go out and find one to see but thought I'd ask here too...see if anyone knows?
Eh...old man with a Corvette now...it was bound to happen sooner rather than later right?
I guess best bet would be to find the trans code, and do some research on it...... IDK how big it is, but I'd think it would have the same bell housing pattern as our Eco

You ever figure this out or anyone ever try? I assume in this fits in the Eco's in place of the F23 style, Could this be used in or with the LD9 set ups With the same mods as the F23?
Got a Project in the making. I may need to start my own thread of a Million and 1 Questions soon.
This is one of the oldest thread revivals I have ever seen anywhere. Nearly 11 years. Damn.
Literally just researching the same thing!!!
Came here to find this... weird...
I think the L61 has a better chance of matching bell housing bolt patterns, over the LN2; I believe the M86 is pictured on Opel's F23 diagram, as the 'variante 2' appears very similar to the F40.
If they're a match, one could interchange with the MK6 variant of the F40 found stateside in the '07 G6 GTP...?

It's probably the F40 that came in the LK9 saabs. In which case, I'm pretty sure that it won't physically fit in the bay even though it will bolt to the motor. I know that the F35 5 speed from a cobalt SS does not fit for this reason. Some of those guys swap to the F40. That being said, a lot of cobalt guys are swapping to the jbody f23 as it seems to be stronger and geared better for short drags.
