I beat my car like it burned my dinner, it's got almost 93k on it, original clutch and has no problems.

Why do so many cobalt owners say they have crap trans, not just the na cars but all of them, are there just that many people that do really dumb stuff to them?

slamming gears and wheel hop is the main reason they fail.

Id say its driver error.

There are F23's that are behind +500-600whp ecotecs and 2.4 Twin Cams that have no issues.

Hell a guy on J-Body.org blew his F23 Quaife LSD before anything else in the trans let go, swapped it out for a welded factory diff and its still in action. He runs in the 10's btw.

If your blowing the trans its from misuse, sorry to say, but many people have no issues with the F23 with MUCH more power than your making.

Hell my F23 has over 300 drag strip lauches on it, all of those on slicks, most of those being in the 1.7-1.8 60' range.

Never grinds, misses a gear or gives me trouble.


Its a much better trans than the SAAB F35 IMO.

He asked the question 6 years ago and I doubt he still has the car. It was answered- it's not a direct fit, read through the comments. And settle down.

Who cares if he still has the car? I did a search looking to see if the shifter is interchangeable between the SS F35 trans and the base F23 trans. Read thru all the posts and still dont have an answer. Do you know?

Also I should point out the thread is about swapping an F35 into an F23 transmission, not if the shifter works or not. Take a chill pill man.

Really?

What I'm trying to figure out is if the LS shifter cables/shifter assembly will work on the F35?I know I will have to get my ecu re-programmed for the different gear ratios. I'm just sick of the weak ass F23 trans. It is without a doubt the worst POS manual trans I've ever had the displeasure of using. The F35 is a much better unit and if I can swap it into my car fairly easily, then I will keep the little turd and build it for boost. If not, then off to the chopping block it goes.

Again chill the **** down. The thread is F35 swap and the OP is talking about swapping the entire transmission with the added shifter question. Read right over that part.

Start your own thread that will help more than adding onto an old thread.
