We always used to use Munci close ratio boxes. I'd be looking at either a 5 or 6 speed especially if you're taking that puppy on the highway.

A used Tremec TKO 500, 600, or a T56; or

from Keisler (which bought out Tremec) a new RS600, RS500

http://www.keislerauto.com/

Or you can buy from G-Force their five and six speed model.

Or if money is no object a Lenco 1200ST 4 speed
