Got rid of the power glide a few months ago and replaced it with TKO500. Sure Is nice to actually get the little 283 to wind up a lot quicker off the line. 8642FE4D-6349-446A-AB1A-5982252B3C71.jpeg 75C29D6C-6639-4EB7-ABEA-6ABEB478539C.jpeg

I just went through this same process. I actually enjoy driving my car again now that there’s more driver interaction.

I did the same thing on my '65 El Camino. The Tremec 5-speed just lets you use the engine torque as long as you want to. Love it.

Thanks Rich, I love rowing gears. It's been 9 years since last manual transmission. Yes its music to my ears listening to my little 283 wind up.
