Hi Nathan,
It's doable, but why not just sell the SC and buy a
TC?   There seem to be more TC's for sale than any
other Rover.  If you are contemplating all that work,
there must be some reason for doing that particular

The entire exhaust system is different, as I recall,
and the transmission tunnel is larger on the automatic
(not really a problem when going auto to stick, but
definely a problem when going the other way.)  To do a
full TC conversion, you will also need the tach/clock
unit for the dash that mounts beside the strip speedo.

Where are you located?  Do you have a source for the
TC parts you need?  The whole idea is just the kind of
thing that piques my interest.
