    Was wondering what a freshly rebuilt M22 with a new clutch, Lakewood bellhousing and Hurst comp shifter would be worth? Whole driveline has 700 miles since rebuild. Considering changing the car over to a auto.

    Real M22, not sure what it was originally out of. My car was originally an automatic.

    Check what the VIN is on the trans and post it.

    Is it a early-70 M22 or a 71-later?
    Other words, fine spline input/400 turbo size output or a coarse spline input/350 turbo sized output?

    The guy that rebuilt it said it had a turbo 400 tailshaft!? I’m not a transmission guy! Know just enough to be dangerous.

    For the whole setup I would say ~2k. You may have to wait awhile though. For a quick sale maybe 1200 to 1500.

    Unless you find the guy that is doing a numbers matching type of resto, most folks are looking for a TKO or T56 overdrive setup so they can drive on the highway. M22's are rare, but not necessarily desirable especially for the street these days. Even wide ratio M20's are a better street trans cause you can run a taller rear gear and still get off the line good. If it has the right numbers for an LS-6 Chevelle or something like that you'll get the big bucks.

    Excellent, thank you. Your right, the tranny is a little whinny in 1st and a little bit in second and the close ratio would be great to road race but I find it a little bit annoying! I don’t think the motor that’s in it would like any part of an overdrive. Thinking Turbo400 or something. Thanks again!
