TKO 500 or TKO 600 for my car?
I'm looking at converted my AODE over to a manual transmission. I'm looking at either the TKO 500 or the TKO 600. My current setup is in my sig below... and I want to have some room to grow, horsepower wise. Below are two combos:

combo 1: I currently have 3.73 gears so I would think the TKO 600 with a 2.87 1st and .64 5th would be ideal.

combo 2: If I swap out my 3.73s and go back to 3.27s then I would go with a TKO 500 with a 3.27 1st and .68 5th.

The reason I would go back to a 3.27 gear is.... I do a lot of highway driving with this car so a low 5th is needed, and I would want a useable 1st gear for the street.

What are everyone's thoughts on these two combos? One sound better than the other, for what I want?

How can I find out my RPM speed at 55 mph and 70 mph with these two different combos?

in your sig you have h/c/i and a supercharger, and you say you want place to grow so just get the one that leaves you more space to grow're talking about a couple grands of investment here so a couple hundred bucks for a gear change shouldn't be the deciding point. go with the 600.

IMO theres simply No reason not to go with the TKO 600 over the 500.They supposedly hold 100 more ft# of Torque and are the same price..Only other thing you need for the 600 over the 500 is a different clutch disk..

TKO500 and 600's both use a 26 spline clutch disc. I'm going to run a TKO600 with 3:55's. I also want an all around car for highway use.

I've got a 600 might as well go with the better once.
