    Your parts itemization and prices is a fantastic addition to the thread. Thank you for sharing.

    My pleasure Brad.
    I thought it would be a good guide line for someone who may be contemplating some sort of manual trans overdrive along my lines of performance thinking.

    The swap could have been less costly if I didn't use the QuickTime bell, dual disc clutch or maybe even this type of a hydraulic clutch system, but I also saved on no completely new driveshaft and x member. Take the numbers cafeteria style, to suit the way you want (or need) to go.

    I did not include the cost of the suspension relocation brackets as they weren't really associated with the swap and I already had adjustable upper control arms and other suspension pieces.

    Don't be intimidated by the trans tunnel work for the 6 speed. You'd have to do tunnel work, regardless for a 5 speed Tremec and if you wish to go mechanical clutch linkage there is also a 6 speed bellhousing available for this.

    Now off to find some stickier tires after filling up with that 94 octane...

    Did some full throttle shifting at 6,600 rpm (my redline) from 2-3 and 3-4 and it worked flawlessly. Credit that to the additional dial indicating and correcting the input shaft runout of the trans to the crank.
