    T50 from a sprinter AE86 or corolla AE71

    T50 can also be found in TA22's but you need to use the A bellhousing

    you can use W55 / 57 / 58 but you need a custom bellhousing there are a few companies now that make A to W bellhousings

    just so u know W5# boxes are much stronger than T50's

    a stock (or modded) bigport on dirt wont kill a t50 though, unless you like ripping gears sans clutch or running without oil. the t50 will also offer a weight advantage over a W series. t50 is the go

    You can get a T50 from:
    AE86 - will bolt up, 22 output splines
    AE71 - Also bolts up, 22 output splines
    TE72 - Needs A series bellhousing, 20 or 22 outputs splines
    TA22 - Needs A series bellhousing, shifter further forward, 20 output splines

    They also came in a variety of exotic cars like SX Cressidas and so on, but they're unlikely to turn up at wreckers.

    Output splines probably wont bother you as you'll be going a custom tailshaft I guess, but something to be aware of if swapping later. As for fitting the A bellhousing to boxes, some people say it won't work and you get oil leaks, I've known other who have done it. I have no personal experience to add though.

    ae71s also came out with a 4 speed too didnt they? if so they'd be heaps easier to find than a T50 at the wreckers, and would be a tad lighter again.

    Not that I know of. All I've seen have been 5, though that is no proof in itself.

    I've seen one 4 speed. In Mumblezzz drifter years ago, said it was from a van or something.

    Unfortunately AE71s and esp their boxes aren't easy to find at the wreckers any more. People have wised up to their usefulness.
