I agree with the others, look for a a engine to swap at the same time. I was told the same thing in my transit and swapped it anyway. Swapped the VH9 with a V730 behind a 6v71 (fresh). Gained 5 MPH but took 25 minutes on a down hill slope to get there.

You'll have to swap the engine bell housing or modify the existing one to have a fluid return for the V730 so the kit should contain:

modified bell housing
input shaft
cooler
tranny support.

Thanks,

Jack

Think I have found a silver lefty 6v92TA just need the guy to decide that he really does not need it hiding in the corner of his garage.

He is on the fence but he is about to go in for knee surgery and we own a Hyperbaric Therapy center so there may be some barter going on here soon :)

The v730 was bigger than I was expecting! Wow
