I had posted one like this before but i want to see if i can get anymore info this time. I have a 1996 dodge ram 1500 club cab with an automatic tranny. and it is stateing to have problems. I've been kickin around the idea of puttin a 5 speed in it. i know i will need the tranny, shiffter, cluch parts.
but how hard is it to change and does any one have a whole parts list and maybe a guess at a price range?
one last thing would have have to get the computer reprogramed for propper operation.
I'd be gratedful for any input
thanks guys
Jerry

Ok, you seem to already know the basic stuff of what you need. You need to makesure tho that for the 5 speed that it is for a small block. Many of the 5 speeds out there wern't under small blocks, but v 10s and cummins. And those are different belhousings. You need a small block belhousing.

Price, depends on the tranny. Expect lots of $$$ to find a good used or even rebuilt nv 4500. There is also the nv 3500, not quite as beefy, but they put them in the 1500's.

Computer, just find a used one out of a 5 speed, same engine and same year and you're set.
