Yes, it will fit just fine. It will not however function properly. You must use a transmission from an S Series (SL, SW or SC) with a SOHC engine. Any automatic tranny from a SOHC equipped S Series car from 1995 and up will be compatible with your transmission.

Yes, it will. Dimensionally, they're the same size and all of the bolt locations are in the same places. It'll fit just fine, just won't work properly.

Original poster asked if it will fit. As answered already by Squareback it will fit. It will not work properly due to different gear ratios. It will confuse the PCM.

Don't try to discuss/argue your way out of an error on your part.

The MP7 has shorter gears then the MP6 for better acceleration. It requires a different PCM to shift it correctly.

There is no factory PCM with SOHC engine and DOHC transmission combo.

I know they didn't make such a PCM, just saying the MP6 and MP7 transmission needs a different computer to shift. I guess I shoulda mentioned the fact that they are non existant
