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

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 Smiley

The v730 was bigger than I was expecting! Wow
