Default 2004 ION Redline Manual Transmission Crossover?

Thanks for the help in advance.

My son just purchased a 2004 ION Redline that is in great cosmetic condition on the inside and out.....Comes with engine that we are installing but lacks a Manual transmission.

A quick internet search tells me that the manual trans was a Getrag F23 5 speed transmission



Question is do any of the manual transmissions from other GM products or possibly Saab work in this car. I am having trouble finding a transmission for him. (Cobalt etc.)

Thanks in advance.

Default Re: 2004 ION Redline Manual Transmission Crossover?

The Red Line Ions use the Getrag F25 which is different than the F23 found in all the other Ions with a manual transmission. Furthermore, the F25 in the 2004 Red Line is somehow different than those used in 2005-2007 Ion Red Line/Cobalt SS (supercharged). I don't know what the difference is, but www.car-part.com shows they are not interchangeable. The part numbers listed below also seem to reflect this.

55354084 - 2004 (MU3)
55560937 - 2005-2007 (MU3)
55563239 - 2005-2007 (MU3) (G85)

MU3 is the option code for the F25 transaxle. G85 is the option code for the limited-slip differential. G85 was part of the Ion's "Competition Package" which was not available on 2004 models.

If this is true, depending on the difference, there may be no cross referencing a part from a cobalt. You may only have the 04 redline to pick from.
