Overdrive transmissions provide many benefits to longevity and fuel consumption, and they are more fun to shift than automatics.   In this series, the V8 Speed & Resto Shop crew installs a Tremec TKO 600 from Modern Driveline complete with a hydraulic throwout bearing assembly for easy action and a Superior clutch for positive grab behind the big block Chevy V8 in our 1969 Chevelle.     The Tremec TKO 5-speed manual transmission handles 600 pound-feet of torque and the Modern Driveline kit puts the shifter in the original position on our ‘69 Chevelle.  
 
Contact Modern Driveline for a kit designed for your classic or Muscle Car, or the V8 Speed & Resto Shop for a complete installation.   
 
 
1971 Chevrolet C10 LS Swap

The GM Connect & Cruise powertrain conversions have become very popular, and for good reason.   They offer a matched engine and transmission combination delivering reliability, power, and economy, and this clean 1971 Chevrolet C10 pickup is going to be used as a daily driver, making it a perfect candidate for the Connect & Cruise upgrade.   We've performed many LS swaps, and are looking forward to upping the power level on this truck to 480 HP and adding the electronic overdrive 4-speed automatic transmission.   You can follow along in the photo gallery below, and if you'd like more information on a swap like this for your ride, click to contact the V8 Speed & Resto Shop.
