i did a search and few people have said that na cables will not work with the turbo cars. so i got that down.

now, how about turbo shift cables from diffrent years ie. 91-93. i have a 91 and was wondering if 92 or 93 cables would work on my 91?

This is what I know: The cable that transmits left-right shifter motion to the transmission works from '91 turbo to '93 NA. The cable that transmits front-back shifter motion to the transmission does not work from '91 turbo to '93 NA, because it's the wrong length, and can't quite shift into 1st gear.

I have heard a rumor that they changed the cables from the '91 to '93 year models. But I never got any confirmation, or clarification about what got changed.

But I don't really know the answer to your question. :(

I snapped my front to back cable.. 93 n/a def. doesnt work 1st 3rd and 5th are impossible.

I was lucky and found a set of 92 turbos.

If your interested, I have an extra set (i ordered two cuz I needed them asap)
I am needing to get rid of them. 92 turbo cables, 53k miles on car they were taken from.
