Considering that the Passon Performance 4 speed OD is $3k ($1900 for the gearset alone to convert your own transmission), 5 speed conversions start at $3500 (and those kits assume you have a 4 speed already), 4 speed OD kits from Keisler start at $4k and gear vendors units are around $2700 I would say the transmission is priced right. It's not $500, but its not a used worn out used transmission, and it's built here in the United States with quality components.
Sorry I didn't get any pictures, there were too many people around it.
Our Keisler RS 5-Speed PerfectFit kits start at only $2295 - including a brand new driveshaft, crossmember, speedo cable, and lots of other parts. Our RS 5-speed is based off the BorgWarner T45 built in Muncie Indiana. All of our components including new case, shaft, gearing, etc is Made in USA.
In Q2/2011, the new maincase will be in production, which will provide even lower profile to eliminate any chance of tunnel mods required with our Keisler Tremec TKO kits.Here is a link
to a thread on this forum on the new RS 5-Speed.
Also, our 4-speed automatic kits are $3795 - not $4K - and like ALL of our other kits, are loaded with many new components including driveshaft, crossmember, etc. Plus NO CUTTING on the automatic kits either.
