    heres the update, I have no R. I cant even get it into gear at the Transmission With my hands! so the tranny is fooked. Also, I didnt switch out the bracket that holds the Cables. I switched only the 90 lever for the 92 lever ( the only one you can take off ) its Still VERY notchy. BUT im going to try and Switch the Bracket that holds the Cables, It wouldnt hurt.

    Is there any difference in the shifter cables from AWD and FWD? When I completed my auto to manual swap a few months back I bought a shifter and cables off ebay and am trying to rule all out every possibility before I go in for a rebuild, (Notchy as hell going into 2nd and 3rd, and occasional notch from 5th to 4th) I wonder because Diamondstarmotorsports sells awd and fwd cables/ I know I got a 1990 set but am unsure if awd and fwd are different somehow

    Mitsubishi CAPS program shows that FWD and AWD shift cables ARE different. I don't know what they are, but they are different. This is news to me as it may explain a LOT of problems my buddies are having.

    That's interesting. I just swapped a 91 tranny, shifter and cables in my 90 GSX. The cables are from a FWD car and it works great.

    Ok, how in the hell do you remove the damn shifter cables from the shifter base? I know you have to remove the brackets that are holding them down, but how the hell do you remove them? Ive been trying for like an hour now. :mad:

    I found some more info on the differences on Vfaq.com under shifter. It shows a little better picture of the bracket differences.

    I've still got my '93 transfer case, cables, and shifter plate from when I put a '93 AWD 5 speed into my '90. I live in Green Bay, WI, so shipping might be a PITA, I'd hit the junkyards.

    When I did my swap, I originally just changed the tranny and t-case and left the '90 shifter cables and linkage in there, it would NOT go into 1st or 2nd, just ground all day long. So I put the '93 cables and shifter plate in, and it worked fine.

    Switching the shifter cables and shifter plate really isn't that hard, I think it too me like an hour total. If you're having problems getting a '90 tranny to work in your 91-94, I'd just switch the '90 cables and plate in, rather that messing around pulling crap off the tranny, trimming cables, etc etc.

    I found the shifter cable trans mount for a 92 if you are putting a 91.5+ in a 90 it is part # MD735585 and cost $12.

    Here is a link for removing the shifter. For the Cables there is a nut with a little hoop behind the ECU, which will also need to be removed. To get to them remove the kick panels. Then there are two bolts holding the shifter cables to the firewall. After that just snake them out through the drivers compartment. Any more questions feel free to email me at Tim.Krieg@gmail.com. I have done this a few times now so I should be able to help you.

    To use them you would need a 91.5+ shifter. But I am not 100% sure if you can use them.
