MG MGA - 5spd for MGA

I just acquired another MGA, (a 1959 1500). I have seen 5speed transmission conversions in the past, but I can't remeber where I saw them. Which transmission does this kit use? How much does the kit cost? Anyone done this update?

Danny, the most popular 5 speed conversion uses a the Type 9 gearbox from a British Ford Sierra (Mercury Mekur in North America) along with a coversion kit built in the UK by Hi Gear engineering. The kits and rebuilt gearboxes are available directly from Hi Gear, or through a number of suppliers in North America including Moss Motors, LBCarCo, Quantum Mechanics, MG Five Speed Co, etc. Should be plenty of info in the library.
