It should, but as you said in reverse pattern and you will have to shift it like a  manual transmission.

 What He Said

Instead of P-R-N-D/Auto-2-1 you have P-R-N-1-2-3, shifted manually.

I was considering it for my car, but with a ratchet shifter - too much slop in my stock shifter even with new bushings.  69Merc (and perhaps others) can chime in on what it's like having in a DD.

You will need to NOT have a steering column shifter.  A floorboard aftermarket one is a MUST.

I love my reverse pattern manual C6.  Then you are always in control of what gear it is in.  If you want to wind out 1st gear it will allow you to because it will never shift until you move the shifter.  I am using a Cheetah SCS shifter from Turbo Action.  I have tried the B & M style shifters and they are crap compared to the Cheetah.

Downshifts are easy, too.  It will drop into which ever gear you put the shifter into, instantly.


Just be careful if you let someone else drive your manual ride.  If they put it into 1st going fast it will go into first high MPH or no.

They say a stock shaft will take 500 to 600 crank hp.
