Reply to "Suby Conversion Tranny Whine"

I think I spent $6k or $6500 net to do a DIY swap of a used Suby 2.2 in my MG. Ended up with an 80k-mile bottom end & re-done heads, new water pump, etc. and it took me a full year to do the job—I'd estimate I had at least 300 hours in the conversion. Had a pro build a stout street trans for me with a 3.44 R&P, which is fine for this application.

I'm sure I could do a Speedster install a bit faster these days but very much doubt I could do one for what Carey charges and still pay myself much more than minimum wage. Plus it wouldn't be in the same league as his.

Mad respect for the Beck boys.
