I do think you would have a hard time getting the complete job and parts for $5000.00 Those short bell housing trannies are the only one that would fit in you car and are getting hard to find. You still have to change some other stuff too....
Heres the crunch,

My car has now a 915 box so changes were made....
So does that mean a short bell housing will no longer fit in my car?

then i could look at later ones if thats the case??
