We were looking for a transmission with a 1.99 ratio second gear. We couldnt find one, but our friends at LWP Auto Salvage had an old Pinto transmission with a 1.96 second, so we went with that. The Pinto tranny bolts up to the engine no problem, but the tailhousing is different. Using a dummy unit, we had to modify our crossmember to accept the different tailhousing. Now well be ready when our racing unit comes in from Jim Cook Race Cars.
