Its not. NV3550 has the jeep I6 pattern bellhousing. NV3500 that comes in the dakota is a SBD 318 pattern/V6. The NV3500 bellhousing is part of the case and is much bigger. An adapter from http://gastodiesel.tdconversions.com works great. I used that one.

I used the nv3550 from a jeep, not the nv3500 that was in my dakota. its similar internals but a lot different on the out side, as well as a removable bell housing.
