Transmission talk please..

I will be taking my stocker stang and going turbo. Im leaning toward Hellion for a complete, a/c usable kit.
My stock t5 is not liking it when I go into 2nd. I know I have to address this. What are my choices for a rebuild, new tranny, or other kind (tko, 6-spd., etc.)
Also, what is a gforce tranny? I need to know if a king cobra clutch is good, or what is better?
Im looking to start at 8-10 psi making about 320-350 hp. Thanx fellas.

I have a g-force T-5. It was built by Astroperformance. Do a internet search for them, they are right down the road from you. I just went a [email protected] And it shifts as if it were proshifted, and its not.

However, go ahead and throw the king cobra clutch in the garbage. For you hp you plan on making, consider a spec 3(or better) or centerforce dual friction. They seem to be good for about 500rwhp.

Thanx Fred, these are the things I need to know. I was considering the HP, but the wait is so long I hear.

BTW, I have access to a rebuilt z-spec t5. Its 1100.00 installed. Is this something I could use, or just go with a tko 500.
