5 speed in a stock SV

Postby 3087sassaman » Sat Jun 30, 2012 3:35 pm

Has anyone put a 5 speed trany in a stock SV alpine. Finding an overdrive trany is next to impossible and I would like better cruiseability.

I used a toyota carolla 5speed T-50, 2T gear box they were in 74 to 78 modles. I used a kit from Dellows, from down under.It works great no cutting of trans. tunnel. Some people use the W-50 boxes but you have to move the shifter hole back 3 inches. 8) http://www.dellowconversions.com.au/
