Default differences in engines: manual and automatic

I am in the process of sourcing a new engine for my GT but was wondering whether there were any differences between the engines mated to auto trannys and manual trannies. Would I be able to take an engine from an auto tranny car and mate it to my manual tranny?

Thanks,

Jason

Generally, it can be done. My g/f's brother converted a Blazer with auto into manual in about 1 day.

I think in your case, you need a different flywheel (because automatics use torque converters), and make sure bellhousing mates the engine, something like that. I think you need a different ECU to control the idling(?), but not sure.

Well, the car is already wired (eco, wiring harness, etc) for a manual tranny, and I already have the tranny. It's just a question of whether I can buy an engine that was mated to an auto tranny and use it with my existing components.

I would bet money that there is no difference between a block out of an auto vs. a manual car... it wouldn't make sense monetarily for the company to cast 2 blocks, unless there were severe limitations to either auto or manual...

Thanks Guys.

Hopefully within the next two weeks I'll have a 99 engine in my car with some SOHC head gaskets (just in case).
