There are variations on the M56 transmission that you can choose from each with little differences that you can read all about on VS as JRL mentioned.<br>I wouldn't worry about the reliability of the Volvo Manual transmissions since Volvo actually made them and they have a pretty good history.

Re: (JRL)

Yea Jim you're probably right that my blanket statement was too vague but there seems to be some agreement on VS that the M56H is quite reliable and is the choice for most doing the swap.

Re: (Big Will)

well, my problem is the dealership has no manual transmissions available. and therefore they have to order them. same thing with anything from outside lebanon. i want to know if there is a 5 speed manual that will fit on my car and that i can find in lebabnon. Would BMW transmissions work? VW? HOnda? anything i can find here?<p>ill check VS now <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">
