That's not a bad price if it's all in good condition. It's somewhere in my general area, I could probably put an eyeball on the stuff if anyone is serious....

DO IT! I'll buy this kit if it gives my (later '83 model) car a chance at a manual trans, maybe a 5-spd mod? That LSD is just screaming for it, and the slushbox ain't helpin'.

That's a really good price, and well worth it- almost makes me wish mine were a 450!

First you need to investigate compatibility. My understanding is that the 5.0 aluminum blocks are a different bell housing pattern from the cast iron....

I'll still buy it, figure the rest out later.

That slushbox is the Achilles' heel to a fully-embodied Euro M117 5.0 experience....AMG at taste!

That is quite a good price for all the goodies. The problem with that for me would be the need for a custom driveshaft and the lack of money and skills needed to use the kit.

If you have money buy it and wait. there is at least 1500$ in parts.
