If somebody could give me a price I would be looking at for the whole job that would be great (I will be having them professionally installed). By the way, this is simply curiosity. I am not planning on doing this for a few years. Thanks
brand new ??!

that longblock & trans is 8k from a junkyard, i can only imagine what it costs new. not to mention the wiring will be a nightmare.

you also realize the t56 is a 6spd, not a 5spd right?

you'll spend around 15k getting an entire terminator drivetrain into your car.
not exactly your best bang for the buck..
