Sry the guy put his hand in the way as soon as i took the pic. Lol

There's a guy down the street that says he'll sell me this borg warner s10 nwc t5 for $250 (and that if there's anything wrong with it i can return it).

My first question is, is $250 a good price? (Its $1200 brand new)

The gear ratios are either
1st: 3.76:1 2nd: 2.18:1 3rd: 1.41:1 4th: 1.00:1 5th: 0.72:1
or
1st: 4.03:1 2nd: 2.37:1 3rd: 1.49:1 4th: 1.00:1 5th: 0.86:1

My second is, what would i have to do to install it in my 69 nova with a 350 sbc?

I already know that this trans isnt that strong but i dont plan on beatin on it and i hate the t350 trans in my car now. It's basically a replacement until i can afford a tko.

Thnx

Post the ID # from the trans. It will be 1352-xxx. The trans has a few problems for using behind a v8. 1. The input shaft may be too long. You can use it if you cut off about 1/4" from the nose. 2. The input shaft spline count may be funky. It will take a special disc, along with a Camaro pressure plate and flywheel. 3. It will take a different driveshaft yoke than your T350. 4. You're right - it isn't very strong. But I made one live behind a stout 350 in an '83 Z28 for a good while. Just don't go drag racing. 5. I think it's too high priced. I'd pay maybe $100-$150 for it. Basically, use it if you have to, but I'd hold out for at least a V8 Camaro unit. Oh, and the shifter is in a different location than the Camaro transmission and also the TKO, I think. So you'll have to cut 2 holes in your floor if you swap it out.

Wow that sounds like way too much work for my skill level and cutting the floor for this temperary trans then cutting it again for a tko just made my mind up. I guess ill just try and find a cheap t10 for now. I dont really have to do to much mods for that right?
