unless you are going to put the whole swap in the 4 dr as it is then ....its ok. but if you are buying the just the engine for the 500. then getting yourself a manual trans . you are going to be VERY disappointed with the out come. the engine on its best day put out 220hp /210tq. you can do that with a B engine. like i said if you are going to put the whole swap in you car then the few dollars you spend it would be worth it . i have done a couple of these swaps. check out the build section for the coupe .

Best motor would be the j32a2....u can pick up that motor at a junk for under 500.......
Stock ecu with rpm system harness ..i/h/e......easy 260hp to the wheels......
Aem ems with custom headers intake and intakemanifold with gaskets 30hp all day
