    4valve Cobra...........dont fear the gear, 410's would have been ok also, but for the occasional track duty 430's are the way to go :thumb: It gets the motor in the power band quick and keeps it there.

    i got a 5 speed and love it 1st and 2nd are a lil rough but they are breaking in nicely, as far as hp rated its the highest you can get in a tremec trans you can get a 500 for a little less money

    well im gonna be running a 306 with head cam intake + an strim at like 10-12 psi so if the block survives for awhile I know the tranny wont haha

    I think a 6spd would be cool and its just a bit more then the 600. what gears do you have and how are 1st and 2nd compared with the old t5?

    1st and 2nd compare to a world class t5 trans and the 500 compares to a stock t-5. you should be able to run a 500 on your car. and plus it would save money that way unless you wanted to spend the extra bucks on a 600 or a 6speed

    I want too, I need that extra over-drive gear these 430's keep the rpms up most of the time, unless Im just in slow roll mode.
