Never with a 3800. Series 1,2, and 3 have never had a FWD manual application. Only manual application for the 3800 in America AFAIK
was the Camaro RS and Firebird SE, and they were only S2 N/A.
The 5spd W-bodies were 3100 and maybe 3400, and I think the McClaren turbo3.1.
Close. The McClaren never had a 5 spd. Only auto.
The GM FWD 5 spd only came on the 88-93 Grand Prix, Cutlass Supreme, and Lumina Z34, and was mates to the 2.8L (88-90), 3.1L (90-91) or the 3.4L (91-93).
Of those, there are 2 versions, the Getrag 282 (88-91 2.8 and 3.1L) and the Getrag 284 (91-93 3.4L)
There were other manual cars, but the W-body was the biggest.
There have been several conversions using these trans into other W-bodies using the 3.8L motor as the power plant. It bolts up to the trans, but requires a specific flywheel to be made and a stronger clutch.
hope that helps.
