Liberty vs Hanlon vs MMR Pro 900?

Building a Dart 363 with 300 shot of nitrous. I want the best I can buy Synchronized TKO 600

So Liberty is the only one I see talked about. Upgraded its $3,104 with shifter

Back in the day Hanlon was talked about a ton and always good. They are $3,030 also with upgrades.

Back in the day MMR was talked about a ton and always good. (I talked to them and they said the Pro 900 was $2,800 with shifter thats with all upgrades) I asked how high it would shift he said he shifts his Coyote at 9k rpms no problem. They also claim its good for 900hp or 9sec @ 150mph. He just said break-in was very important and correct fluid and have a good clutch I told him I was going dual Friction he said that was perfect thats what he uses.

Question is simple MMR looks like a no brainer but most aren't using them. Why? What am I missing?

I'm not a troll or anything I'm on my second build you can check me out. Its just not adding up I would think for the money and power rating everyone would be using MMR or I'm missing something?

This is my latest build.

Have you considered faceplated? Love our Liberty faceplated TKO 500. Street/strip hasn't given us an ounce of trouble 6 years about 500 passes. However, only 500hp, 6000-7000 rpm shifts.

Stock Block 408", TFS 11R 205, TFS EFI Carb R Intake, XFI 236HR, Tweecer, Faceplated TKO 500
10.49 @ 130mph

Ended up doing a T56 magnum and ordered from Hanlon. After calling them and looking at reviews to me they were the best choice.

The T-56 is a nice gear box. I see in your sig you have shorty headers.
That will make life easier,getting the exhaust past the altered clutch fork clocking of the T-56.

With the road racing ratios, the 5th and 6th gears will be better without needing such a steep rear gearset. I think you made a wise choice. Transmission is rugged, and shifts quite nicely. I'm sure it will take whatever you dish it.

I have the wide ratio in my '95, with 3.73 gears, 5th works well on the highway, 6th is what I would call a "high speed" gear. The car is built for road course tracks, 363 with solid roller and single plane manifold (still SEFI though) doesn't make great lower rpm torque as yours will.

I bought my T-56 from Bill Walsh at D&D Performance in Michigan, I really enjoyed talking with a legend in the 5.0 scene, transaction and customer service was exemplary.

I called them (D&D) and it was like press 1 to order or questions email. So I was out. The info on the website was out of date also. So I wasn't sure if they were really still open or just had a name and can still sell stuff.

I ended up getting the .63 6th due too. They quit making the .50 in 2019. Due to this I got the 2.66 1st they offer both the 2.66 and 2.97 now with the .63 6th.

I bought the T-56 probably 5 or 6 years ago, so my experience can't be considered current.

On the other hand, the A5 stuff I ordered from Astro still has not been shipped yet. Tony has been providing excellent communications with me via e-mail, sometimes small businesses don't have the personnel to provide great phone support and still get work done in a timely manner (small business owner here, I sympathize).

Try to get Ed Curtis on the phone, fine example of not enough hours in the day for a busy guy whom can't be on the phone, and still get anything done. He doesn't even provide a phone number. The World is changing how business is being done, and not necessarily for the better IMHO.

I've just crossed the retirement age threshold, so of course I remember how things were done before the internet age. Just have to remember that was a different time.
