I have been wanting to find a five speed manual tranny to put behind the 360 in my 87 Ram Charger. i was wondering if anyone knew of a good one. there are three major factors in my decision: easy of install, hp constraints, and can i still use my stock t/c and drive shafts. any help whould be greatly appreciated, thank you.

Hey, welcome! Put your trucks specs in your signature so we know what all you have and itll make things easier.. Im assuming you have an NP435 tranny now and are looking for overdrive.. If you are going from another 3 or 4 speed it would cmplicate things slightly, and if you are going from an automatic, it gets even worse. The best 5 speed for the job is the NV4500. Almost a bolt in replacement. You would have to have the rear driveshaft shortened by about 2" because the Nv4500 case is longer..
