5 speed

Pretty sure you'll need a bell housing
Clutch pedal and clutch master/slave cylinder assembly
Inspection cover
Go with a solid flywheel (dual mass are junk)

All I can think of right now....

No bell housing. They are part of the trans.

I think you might need the driveshafts but I am not sure.

These guys basically got it all. You dont need all of it, like a manual steering column, though it would be nice.

Tranny
Transfer case, though you can use yours if its a BW 1356 or 1345
Peddle assembly
Clutch slave cylinder
Clutch line
Clutch master cylinder
Flywheel (single mass are the best, stock are dual mass and wear out over time)
Clutch
Driveshafts
Steering column (if you have to have it)
Gauges (if you have to have it)
Shifter (s)
Shifter boots
Floor pan were the shifter go through on the manual tranny, they are different shapes for the different trannies


Thats about it. Have fun with it . I would personally try to find a overdrive unit, about the same money in the long run, and you wont have to deal with a weak tranny (at least compared to my T-19). Plus you dont have to listen to that dang gear rollover noise ZF's make (like nails on a chalk board to me)
