tranny length question
 
How much longer is the NV4500 than the stock AX-5 that I have in my 4 cyl YJ? Also, does anyone know how much shorter or longer the Atlas t-case is compared to the NP231? I appreciate all your help.

OK, I found out from AA that the Atlas II t-case is 2 1/2" shorter than an NP231 with SYE kit. But I still need to know how much shorter or longer the NV4500 is compared to the AX-5. Does anybody know?

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).

Well, I don't think I'll need adapters because I'm also swapping the engine for a 350 that I have sitting in the garage. All the pieces should mate up together pretty well. The tranny and t-case will come adapted since I'm buying them from AA.

According to my AA books, the AX-5 is 10.25" long, and the NV4500 is 12.37" long. Do you need any other info?

Re: tranny length question
 
Cooool. In that case, the whole thing becomes a real guessing game, because the 350 may not sit in the same place (and is a different length) than what you have now. I know of at least 2 v8 conversions that used 5.0 ford engines that were able to locate the engine 2 - 4 inches forward of where the I6 was before. Don't know of where exactly a 350 goes, but do know that it is not as short as the ford. I suspect that you will end up with the bellhousing in more or less the same place as an I6. I think you're going to have to talk to AA more to figure it out.

Re: tranny length question
 
Well, I'll be buying everyhting from them anyway(engine mounts, bellhousing, tranny, t-case, etc). The reason I even asked this question is that I wanted to get an idea of how much I'll be shortening/lengthening my driveshafts.
