Default Going from a Getrag 288 to a NV-T350

Has anyone ever performed this swap? Say take a NV-T350 from a neon or numerous other vehicles and swap it into a manual PT that came with a Getrag 288? The reason I ask is I keep seeing 3.94 gears for those transmissions, lightweight flywheels (single mass, not this dual mass crap), numerous aftermarket clutches, and just overall a larger aftermarket support it seems. I think having some 3.94 gears would be awesome for the track

I don't know much about the NV-T350 so perhaps it is an inferior transmission but I figured I would ask if anyone has performed this swap. I know the T350's came in the 01-02 PTs so I can't imagine it being too difficult of a swap other than different axles, clutch, flywheel, some bolts, and I would think the shift linkage would be fairly similar but I could be wrong.

If anyone has experience with this it would be greatly appreciated.

i heard the axle length's aren't going to line up
and the 288 is geard optimally for the cruiser's size and weight

It can be done. Not sure if you can still use the intermediate shift. The n/a PT's had that transmission, so just find a donor car and swap pieces. You may have to swap shift cables too?! If you make big power and run out of gear, snag a 3:55 fd ratio Trans from a ln 01 + neon.

Just remember, the T350 transmission is weaker, bit more plentiful.

No intermediate shaft, direct bolt on. You will need a south bend stage 2 clutch for the nvt 350 to have the same strength. You will need unequal length cv axles from any neon or Pt cruiser. You can go with the 3.55 or 3.94. Just keep in mind 3.94 will be hell at highway speeds.

In theory, you should be able to use the intermediate shaft from an automatic turbo car with the nv350. The logic is as follows: Since the axles used for both manual and auto non-turbo cars are the same part, with of course same length etc, that means the diff is located in the same place with approx. same dimensions on both allowing the same axles to be used. And, since the Automatic used in both turbo and non-turbo is the same (individual internal parts are irrelevant for this discussion), then it follows that the intermediate shaft system used on the automatic turbo cars would be a direct swap into manual non turbos with an NV350.

ALL PT's came from the factory with a 3.94 - the 2001 had a slightly taller 5th gear that would slightly lower highway rpm.

there is a T350 version intended for a 1.6L export PT that has a 4.13 final drive. if i still had my non turbo PT running, this is the version i'd be after.

read this before diving in.


FWIW you're not gaining much gear with the 3.94 because your first gear is numerically higher. i'd rather have the strength

GT
1: 3.92
2: 2.21
3: 1.46
4: 1.11
5: 0.88
Final Drive Ratio: 3.29

NA
1: 3.50
2: 1.95
3: 1.36
4: .97
5: 0.81
Final Drive Ratio: 3.94
