Anywhere between $3000 and $5000 depending on how much you pay for parts. You need the whole driveline. Transmission, transfer case, driveshaft and rear differential.

I just picked up the 6 speed trans, transfer case, driveshaft, rear end, speedometer, shifter and cables for $2250. Labor is free if you do it yourself like me, I would recommend experienced mechanics only attempt it though its a huge job.

Did you need the speedometer? And where'd you happen to find this setup for so cheap? I'm looking to add a 6speed tranny to my list (keep more power low). Info appreciated!

I made the conversion on my '93 RT TT in the spring of 2000. I purchase all my parts from Cherry Auto Parts in Toledo, Ohio (cherry-auto.com). I got all the parts from a '96 RT TT with 26k miles. 6-spd trans. $1600, rear end $400, Drive Shaft $250, Transfer $500. I used the existing shifter and cables. I had the pinion gear moved from the '96 rear end into my '93 rear end for $226 ('96 rear ends were not setup for AWS). While I had the trans. out I replaced the clutch with a RPS turbo and fly-wheel (which I got for free from the '96). I did a lot of the work myself with the help of a local mechanic and my father. The fact that dad let use one corner of his heated farm shop for the winter help a lot!!

I love the conversion. I get great gas mileage on the highway. The feeling of hitting 100mph and still have 3 more gears is awesome.

I got my stuff out of a wrecked 94, so I have the AWS in the rear end. I am not sure about the speedo, but I was told by the guy I bought it from that I will need it.

I didn't replace or convert the speedo during my conversion and it stills seem to be reading the right speed. I did change the speedo gear right after I purchased the car to one with one more tooth to solve the accuracy problem that the 1st gens. had at higher speeds.
