NV4500 5 Speed

The New Venture Gear NV4500 is one of the most popular candidates for manual transmission conversions and transmissions swaps. This is due in part to the transmission's short case length, high strength, granny low 1st gear, and aftermarket support. As a result, there is an abundance of adapters for a variety of applications available.
