5017848AB - 3.94 R/T gears - $584msrp
5017853AA - Output shaft - $1260msrp
In order to swap to the 3.94 gears, you also need to change the outputshaft in the trani, thats why its easier to buy a trani used and complete.

Wow I didn't even know they did that. I mean, it makes perfect sense. But yeah.

damn easier and cheaper, the R/T tranny is $1450 MSRP and the reg sxt tranny is $200 more, that makes no sence that the parts cost more than the tranny

yes it does...

lets step back in time a little to before the neon was killed...

go to a dealership, get the price tag on the window sticker of a new SRT4

now go up to the parts department, and ask them to BUILD you an SRT4...

cost of parts alone will be around $35k AT LEAST...just for the parts :)

i know that but shit just for 3 parts the markup is so high its more than a all new tranny thats built already with labor costs stacked on top of the parts to make it.

it almost seems backwards

Yeah but how many R/Ts were made compared to the SXTs/SEs? Supply and demand. Not everyone wants to mod their cars.

This would make sence if the R/T tranny was more expensive than the SE/SXT but its not.... its like 200-500 dollars cheaper

Acording to Autozone's vehicle selector, the R/T's acount for 2% of '01 sales, so basically there are prolly more 3.94 MTX's sitting on the shelf, hence the lower price. Not to mention a lower demand. Especially with fuel at 4.19/Gal. There are prolly some R/T owners wishing for 3.55's! The $200 extra would recoup pretty fast these days.
