I really just want the overdrive for long treks i know it wont save MUCH on gas but the lower RMS will help keep my engine temp down. What am i lookin at here?

It's not really that hard,I did mine myself.But pulled it back out to have it rebuilt.Shorter drive shaft,different cross member,speedo gears,tv cable set up.I had 500 in parts not including transmission.Check out bowtie overdrives they have a ton of info on these swaps.also check out the 2004r swap a lot of people like that one too.floor shifter too
