Tremec TKO 600 Installation

A Tremec TKO 600 five speed was ordered from Hurst Driveline Conversions, formerly Classic Chevy 5 Speed.  The transmission was ordered as a kit which includes everything to make the automatic to manual conversion.  The TKO-600 incorporates the following gear ratios.   2.87,  1.89,  1.28,  1.00,  0.64 and rated for 600 ft-lbs.   The kit is touted as a “no cut, no modification” setup.  This may be a bit of a stretch.  Although all the parts were included some modification was required of the floor pan.  So far I’ve been pleased with how smoothly the installation has been.  The top of the transmission is a little closer to the bottom of the floor pan than I’d like.  It’s an extrememly close fit in this area with almost no clearance.  The clearace hole for the shifter is rough at the moment but will be cleaned up next week.
