I am working on a Shell Valley Cobra Kit car with a Ford Crate motor. It is the 514 SVO and it runs great. I am running it through a 4 speed transmission that does not work very well to a Pyle Bros. Ford 9 inch with 315/35-17 tires. The car tops out at a 100 but get there real fast. It will smoke a 01 GTS Viper when I can get it in gear. So I ordered a Tremec TKO but am having problems adapting it to the big block. If any one has any information this will be well appreciated.

OK, I'll bite. (Get it?) I'd love to do this to my 429CJ, but with 500 ft/lb of torque - I just have a very mild BB, what is the chance of this or any other 5 speed living?

Isn't the Richmond (Doug Nash) strong enough? Lots of gear ratios to choose from also.
