    You must like vintage stuff some where in there since you are building a trifive. A trifive was modern almost 65 years ago. Just think in 25 to 30 years from now everything you are doing to the car...

    That is like jacking up the vin plate/build tag and inserting a new body, frame, and drivetrain.

    When done in the confines of your own garage who can say differently.

    Your car looks sharp. Nice pulling one off the trailer and not need anything done and be able to cruise. It has a nice blend of new and vintage, sharp stance.

    Rescue dog that is a neat Tahoe. Does it have 6.2 liter, 4WD? It looks lowered, what’s the wheel size? Looks like it could be part of Trump’s escort.

    A twenty to twenty five percent increase in tranny weight is substantial. The size of a Tremec TKO is about the same percentage over a Muncie. I’m not sure how one compares to the other in torque...

    Interesting thing on weight. Sure Tremec weight is way more than Muncie. But the 50’s and 60’s cars were way lighter than the performance models today. My 65 vette is under 3000 lbs a new one is like...

    This is the Hurst I had on the M20 when the Nomad had a Muncie. It’s a single weld shifter no bolts holding it to the pivot.

    I didn’t have shifting problems with the Hurst/Muncie M20. But I can say the Tremec is smoother. I haven’t noticed any issues with the 2-3 shift. I have the same tremec 600 TKO in my 65 Corvette And...

    Yes the smoother shifting and OD are worth the Tremec change over from a Muncie. The retro thing is for pure nostalgic muscle cars. But they typically donít get driven on a regular basis.
