I am not positive but i think this unit fits a Mitsubishi and a Dodge Stealth
engine , this one is a automatic but i'am trying to wind up with some of the 5 speed units. these will allow a longitudinally mounted engine. The engines are DOHC v-6 with a nice bit of power .
I did'nt know how to post the pictures on here so i put them on my Flicker
,so just click on there and take a look.

Also to adapt a v-8 chev engine to this unit you will have to cut the bell housing area for the starter nose , mount the starter to the 3/4 adapter
plate and do away with the oil filter . I havent mocked up any of this but you might could use a remotely mounted oil filter. Let you know down the road.

Hi,

That picture looks like a Chrysler 41TE or 42LE 4 speed automatic transaxle.

I used to own a Dodge Stealth ES and the twin turbo version would easily support 325 HP from the factory. I put 217,000 miles on my 5 speed with no clutch replacement or trans issues.

dB..........

Hi,

I believe it is the 300C trans, I don,t know about the Prowler.
The 42LE is the Auto trans for the Chrysler inline engine group.
It is still a front wheel drive but an inline, not a crossline engine mount.

They can handle the power and the 4th geat is .69:1 overdrive.
Look at websites for troubles and durability.

That does look a lot like the 42LE. I did an adapter for one of those to an LS engine. It works well and with the location of the differential it is shorter than most other transaxles. I didn't know that there was a manual version of it. Does anybody have any information or pics of that?

I did some checking it is a 42LE . I got it from a Dodge dealer and he said that he thought it fit a Mitsubishi 3000GT and the Dodge Stealth . He also said that he thinks that they had a 5 speed in the same configuration but he was'nt sure .
This trans and the V-6 that was in front would make a very peppy little
combination for some of the builders ,,,,,,,,,, I still prefer the V-8 Chevrolet.

That's the same tranny I have been working with for a couple of years. EA Martin made my adaptor to GM LS and did a good job. Might want to look for the thread discussing the 42LE. Also some post over on GT40s.com This is an excellent option if you want auto or paddle shifted auto. I'm sure it is not bullet proof but based on my work, it will handle decent power. I have not tested that limit but the LS is a little more than stock, say 350hp/350lbft. Just in a chassis, no body. No manual that I am aware of.

Anyone have any pics of this 42LE behind a SBC or any other engine in their replica? What controller did you use? I found one local to me and Im interested in getting rid of my Fiero 5 speed setup....

Also- How much is it for a adapter plate for a SBC?
Thanks!
