5 speed od conversions are available @ $3500

OD units available @ $1000 new , serviceable used units at abt 600$ when one can be sourced + i think it requires change out of gearbox innards.

they will increase FE by est. 20% . from @ 30MPG to @ 35 or so. using current $3/gallon if i calculate correctly results in 1.7 cents per mile cost saving or less than .0066 gallon/mile . . resulting in break even mileage of about 59000 miles for the new unit and 35000 miles for the used unit ..

i would like an OD . its on my list

TY
