    i,ve got a muncie 4 speed in mine but if you want a bit of a better milage out of it you should look at the 5 speeds (overdrive) options, there probably cheaper than the muncie 4 speed anyhow, don,t go near the saginaw 4 speeds thou, i had 2 of them n they both didnt get on with a bit of horsepower,you can tell these by their iron gear cases, the good box,s are ally cased (muncie, T10 ect) good luck with it

    Thanks for the info Carl. I'd definitely want a five speed as I'd like to drive it!
    What's the T10 box? I haven't heard that mentioned...

    Is that the same T5 that was used in Cossies and TVRs? I'm assuming the bellhousing would need changing.

    I have a feeling the input shaft is different on those...have you thought of a ZF six-speed, came in manual C4 vettes from 89 on? Maybe at that age you could find one breaking for spares.
