also check the box linkage length,column is nice but has too many pivot points to wear out,gives you a bench seat.

Yeah it will work, just swap over all the linkages and the bellhousing, they're the same gearbox.

Just be aware that the while the EF/L auto will bolt up to the EA-D engines and vice versa, EF/L torque converters are NOT interchangeable with the EA-D trans, they have a different throat size. Just keep the correct converter with the correct trans and you'll be fine.

Sons car (EF) had a stuffed trans when we got it (hey it was cheap) and we bought another trans... We just had to drill 2 holes in the bellhousing to fit the cross brace for the Column auto...

Just drilled 1 hole bolted the plate on and drilled the other one... dam sight easier that removing the bellhousing. :D
