Can you powershift from 3rd to second w/a faceplated trans?
My son was drag racing with a "Z" T-5 and somehow screwed up on a powershift and when in 3rd going to 4th, he must have pulled back at a angle and it went back into second. He said it got real ugly for a second and the engine rpms went sky high. Thankfully nothing broke. He is building a 363 and was looking into a faceplated TKO600 for high rpm shifting. If you do what he did and don't pull straight back, would it go from 3rd back into second even easier since it is faceplated. I guess what he wanted me to ask is if he goes to a faceplated trans, would it powershift from 3rd to 2nd just as quick/easy as it would 3rd to 4th if you pull the shifter wrong? I hope that makes sense. It's only ever happened 1 time for him, but it scared the crap out of him and he was a little nervous about doing a faceplated trans if it would be even easier to make that mistake again. Thanks
