Hi guys I rang malwood the other day to get a price on a gearbox that would hold around 350rwkw they recommended the tremec TKO box. But all up they told me it will cost over 6 grand to do :evil: . Is there any cheaper why to do this or will I have to fork over a real big chunk of my hard earned cash :cry: , I would like to keep the car manual. thanks for your help.

ba V8 tremecs will only fit modular motors due to integrated bellhousing
