THE LATEST UPGRADES:

March 2015 replaced the C-4 automatic transmission with a new Tremac T-5 5 speed manual.

3/10/2015 Changed ring & pinion gears to 3.55:1

3/16/2015 Ordered complete kit to change from automatic(c4) to T-5 (5 speed) transmission with  hydraulic clutch from “Modern Driveline”.

7/2016 Changed ring & pinion gears to 3.80:1

2/2017 Changed Edelbrock intake manifold to a Weyand “Stealth” This solved the leam mixture miss the engine was showing.

 

This should pretty much complete the transformation of the car from a classy mostly stock driver, to a classy and very sleeper modern muscle car.
