Faceplated Transmission

Okay, so I got my TKO 600 back in from being faceplated by Liberty Gears. This thing is badass and shift like a dream. I’m going to the track this weekend, but curious on how much this mod will drop my ET in the 1/8 mile.

How much did it drop your ET going faceplated?

Since nobody else has a reply, I will give my guess. I don’t have a faceplated trans just a T5 but I do powershift.

I would think it is worth at least a tenth. But it depends on how well you could shift it before? Let us know

what was your best pass before the trans upgrade?

any other changes or is this a true apples to apples?

I am very interested in how well it works on the track. I am about to pull my TK600 once this hurricane clean up is done and get it face plated as well.

If you don't mind I have few questions.
What made you choose Liberty?
How fast was the turn around from liberty?
Did you get all the gears face plated?
Did they do anything else to the transmission?
Total cost? (you can send that via Pm)

90 LX Notch 5.0 5spd, bolt on drag car with some giggle gas.
11.71 @ 116mph
86 Gt T-top 5.0 5spd, That one day project.
