I just read through Chris's entire 545 > A1000 swap (40 pages) and yes he is one smart dude!

Great info and detail level Chris, thanks for the education.

It sounds like the 545 to 643 swap was equally fun.

My bus is a shorty with the T444E, a 5-speed manual, and 5.38 gears. It tops out at 55 at ... 2700 RPM I believe. Being a manual, I'm reasonably sure 5th is direct drive and there is no OD. I'd like to swap it to a 4.10 gear which by the math should give me around 70 top speed. The 5.38 gear set will be available for anyone wishing to make an offer (it's an N175 axle if memory serves me correctly.)
