That is the stock tranny from a 20020v. It's just most people haven't seen

A Front Drive tranny is much shorter and an automatic is much different.
I do agree with the riskiness of this deal. Unless you could find out the
story with it and confirm that you get the ECU and wiring harness I would
Since it was hit in the front and broke the timing cover and tranny mount,
you need to be sure the timing didn't jump and bend the valves.
