Hi guys,

No pictures to post yet, because I don't have the trans. 3.27 1st gear from MDL. hydraulic clutch. I'm going from a powerglide. I have a 3.07 12 bolt in there now, and may change gears and a truetrac.

i'm thinking about the offset shifter
and the bench seat oval boot/retainer ring. also wasn't sure about which shifter handle, they originally spec'd out the camaro handle but then recommended the tri-5 handle because they said the tri-5s were all bench seats so that should work. my seat is all the way up.

I too am planning a TKX swap for my 66 El Camino. I have a Muncie four speed now, my problem is I want the 18083 trans and have been waiting since December for it to be available. Last communication I had is possibly May delivery. I am running a SBC with 3.31 gearing and 26 inch tire. I feel the 3.27 first gear and .72 OD would be best in my application. I have also ordered the trans mount, crossmember, reverse pigtail, Dakota gauge pigtail and offset shifter. Maybe we get lucky and post the installs together.
