A Bert would require a longer drive shaft, a Brinn would not. I run a Bert with a stock bellhousing. $700 to $900 would be the trans and maybe the coupler. I would definitly recommend these over a 3spd or glide.

would a brinn bolt right up to a stock bellhousing or scattershield (chevy) or does it require some modification?

The Brinn is your best bet.I bought one of the first series Brinns in 1990. that trans has changed hands 5 times and to the best of my knowledge has only had new clutches 3 times.A friend of mine has it now in a UMP modified.They are a direct replacement for a 3 spd or glide ,same length and output spline. You will need the coupler that bolts to your flexplate, because the input shaft is 1.375 x 10 spline.

YOU CAN BUY A BERT NEW FOR 1150. OR LESS IF YOU SHOP AROUND IT SHOULD COME WITH A DRIVE FLANGE THAT YOU CAN USE WITH A STOCK FLEX PLATE IT WILL MOUNT TO A STOCK BELL AND YOU NEED A TWO LEVER TYPE SHIFTER AND MYBE A LONGER DRIVE SHAFT. WORKS GREAT AND IF YOU CHANGE FLUID REG WILL LAST A LONG TIME 4,5,6 SEASONS OR MORE USE TYPE F AUTO TRANS. BUT IF YOU CAN AFFORD THE BELL HOUSING AND REVERSE MOUNT STARTER.YOU CAN ALSO GET THIS WITH A BELT DRIVE AND RUN A COMBO FUEL/POWER STEERING PUMP GETS THE WEIGHT BACK AND HOLDS UP WELL. AND IF YOU BUY THE RIGHT STUFF YOU CAN PUT IT TOGETHER A LITTLE AT A TIME.
