Default 4 speed manual swap

So I'm tired of blowing 700r4 transmissions. Going to pick up a 4 speed trans, bellhousing, new clutch, pressure plate, throwout bearing, and slave cylinder, along with the np 208 adapter all for $250. Besides the pilot bearing, flywheel master cylinder and pedal, what else would I need ? should be fairly easy right ?

the hoses too sounds like the only thing you left off. also the reservoir if that isnt attached to anything.

also i think too since the truck is a auto your gonna have to drill all the holes to mount all this stuff. in theory it shouldnt be that bad, just a little time consuming

Yeah I figured is have to drill. Got my old trans out, all I can say is the body lift makes working under the truck so nice haha. Just gotta wait for my flywheel now. Picking up pedal and master cyl on Sunday. Should have it all ready by next weekend. Granny gear burnouts

yeah 4 speed sounds very intriguing. dont have a clue what it consist of for a auto to manual swap, but u sound like your on the right path.

it is definitely going to be time consuming and a bunch of custom fabs.

take lots of pics to share with us..

and good luck with the swap
