Manual or automatic

I see most people connected the motor to manual trans. My car is automatic, can I use automatic trans. To drive the car? Or should I remove trans. And connect the motor directly to the transfer case?

The auto trans can be used with some tricks, but it's much less efficient.

You can attach a motor directly to the transfer case with adapters, but you may need to think about gearing—having no transmission is roughly equivalent to leaving the car in 4th gear all the time.

If your transfer case has low gears, that might work well...
