Ever come with a manual tranny?

Did the Intrepid from 1998 on up ever come equipped with a manual trans.....meaning there was a clutch pedal?

No. No LH ever came with a manual transmission stock.

The pedal to the left of the brake is the e-brake.

Probably the guy that dropped the Chevy V8 engine in and converted it to RWD.

It exists. No one knows who it is though. We just have pictures from a car show. Twin turbo v8.

I have yet to see ANY LH have a manual trans.

The biggest challenge is the fact that our engines are longitudinal, instead of transversely mounted.

Hold on now, whos got pics of this V8? Do they show the engine? What engine is it?

Twin turbo? I want one? I was going to do a swap for the 3.5 but a V8 would be way better!

A v-8 swap into an LH requires some serious knowladge and skills to preform, including alot of subframe modding, stiffing, not to mention the work it takes to make it RWD. I wouldnt recomend doing this swap unless you have a shop with ass loads of tools, you know what the hell your doing, and having very deep pockets on top of it all, twin turbo V8 setups are not cheap...

Ya cant imagine how much faster our cars would be if it didnt loose so much power in the drivetrain, would make for a real fun car.
