I do not know how the new internals work, but I do know that the 
rebuild consists of brand new gear sets, shafts, forks, seals, etc (I 
called last night).

However, the is a nasty downside. There is no syncro-mesh, it just 
uses dog-teeth. And the cost is over $10K. I've no idea if GTO can 
sell the parts directly, and if so, if they'd work in the front-
loader version of the UN-1 that the DeLorean uses, versus the side-
loader version from the Esprit. After all, since I've never cracked 
two open side by side, I've no idea how the shift forks vary, if at 
all, to mate up to the external linkage.

Will they work on the DeLorean trans, probably. I spoke with the guy, 
and told him exactly what the application was for, and what kind of 
motors I was considering mounting to it. And I've got to say that it 
was a positive response. In fact, one of the few I've ever had. But 
he doesn't do the work himself, he ships your core out to GTO 
Engineering in the UK, and they in turn ship rebuilt transmissions 
back. Which does concern me about both warranty work, and getting my 
ring gear installed properly.
