Should I get a T-Lok?

Barking the tires going into second is fun but if I wanted them to hook up would a T-Lok be good for these hard 1-2 shifts? Would it keep me from spinning on the shift?

Hard as in the barking or difficultly of the shift? A short throw shifter could help if that's the case

Hard as in the shift firmness of my tuned auto transmission, like the way it shifts I just either need wider rears than my 245s or a t lok if it can handle it

You can put a tlok on the stock rear no problem, but pulling a GT rear end from a junk yard is definitely your best option. You can just rebuild the rear as is, or put in better gears. Either way its 5 times better than the rear we have.

the tloks are expensive for the 7.5, it's cheaper to get a 8.8. I paid $280 for a 8.8 and BBK CAI, it came with a free totaled 01 GT.

If its working good could I give you an address to send it to, to take it off your hands? Can't stress how much it would be a huge help

Yeah it still locked up good before I pulled it, just be sure to replace the carrier bearings.

For $80 sure lol
