well for starters...for a DD/ sled pull once a year, u could easy build ur auto to handle that. but...if ur dead set on a manual swap, ur more than likely looking at the nv45...unless ur thinkin 6 speed??

but for a good DD/ mild sled pull 5 speed, ur obviously looking at a good clutch...single or twin disc(if u do a twin or a big single, u might be needin an upgraded slave cylinder for less pedal pressure), updated 5th gear and counter shaft/nut, possibly bigger input shaft. that should get u a decently reliable tranny, if u dont abuse it.

chances are, if u sled pull once a year...that will turn into twice a year, then 3 times a year, and so on. so for that reason, i would say get ur self a decent twin disc because the singles dont take the sled pull starts quite as well/long as a twin disc will. and again i say, it all depends on how u drive 'em.
