    if you have VC engine than you need 5-speed gear box from MA engine...

    look for 1-st gen Mazda 626 (CB2) 1979-1982 and Mazda 929L (LA4)

    ok, so those are my options.
    will they bolt strait up without mods? as long as they are from the 1970ccm f/MA engine?

    I need one of those too....

    Does anyone know of any other gearboxes that would bolt right in? or are we limited to the aforementioned mazda ones? what about any fords (considering they have a bit of swapping going on)

    The MA 5spd box will bolt up to the engine, but you might need to use the bottom plate from the MA engine, relocate the gearbox crossmember and have the propshaft shortened
