Faceplated trans works awesome!!!
There are a lot of threads of people asking about faceplated transmissions, I sent mine in a couple of months ago and I finally installed it. It was done by Promotionpowertrain.com
I drive my car on the street a lot and I like to drive fast. 2nd and 3rd go in like butter, sometimes I don't even notice that the gear went in. Yes...it "clunks" real loud but it is all about going fast...right?
To drive normally I just shift real slow letting the rpm's go down and it goes in like a regular transmission. Down shifting is a little tricky but I do it the same way.
And yes, I kept messing with the car and it is running about 70% good. The carb is running lean.
