Re: tranny length question
I don't know exactly, but I do know this:
AA says that the bellhousing/tranny/adapter for the nv4500 is roughly the same length as the AX15 + bellhousing. The AX15 is roughly 1.5 - 2 inches longer than the AX5. I'm not sure how long the adapters are, so I can;t tell you the exact length of the tranny. I would assume that the tranny with adapters would be about 1.5 - 2 inches longer than what you have now. if you had an Atlas II, then the whole thing should be about the same length as what you have now, assuming you now have a SYE. This is just what I've been told. I never looked into it further because I simply don't have the cubic dollars necessary to get into this combo. The tranny itself is expensive enough, but the adapters are completely outrageous. However, I do remember calculating at one time that an NV4500 + Atlas II would end up being about 2 inches shorter than what I have now (AX15 + 231SYE).
