There's so much awesomeness in this video I needed to break it up into 2 parts!
After my dyno run, I realized the T-5 Transmission I had might not be enough to handle the power my engine was putting out. I reached out to Paul Cangialosi and asked if that was the case. He confirmed that the T-5 he built likely wouldn't hold together under that kind of power. he recommended that I go with a TKO600 from Tremec instead.
After talking with Bruce Couture from Modern Driveline, he recommended some other components like the steel bell housing and hydraulic clutch. It was also recommended I go with a new transmission brace from Stifflers because the stock bracket wouldn't work.
The result of all that is what you'll see in this video. If you're looking to upgrade or install a new manual transmission in your vehicle for performance purposes, this video is for you.
