    Is there a link I’m not seeing that has a full rundown of parts needed to do an auto swap on a 1g?

    I just picked up an auto drivetrain (trans/tcase/rear diff and axles). What else am I gonna need?

    Shifter, shifter cable, flexplate, converter, and some way of controlling the trans (shift box (easiest), or tcu). And I would swap the pedals also and use the auto mounts.

    Can you use a non turbo tcu or does it have to be from a turbo Car?

    I believe the turbo tcu has different shift points than the non-turbo.
    I would honestly go with a shift box. Ive had great luck with the forced four boxes personally.

    Don’t you have to manually shift the car with the shift box? I want something I can just drive as well as drag race.

    No, with the smart 100 you can set your own shift points and a lot of other features. I believe the smart 50 will let you do the same, but with a few less features than the 100. Check out their website and you can compare the boxes.
