Don't get style points at the 1/4 for having 3 pedals

I'm almost positive Art Carr is the guy who builds the auto/manual ones but honestly I'd go one or the other.

The tko is a very strong transmission but cannot shift as fast or smooth as a regular t5. I heard if you try and rush the tko 600 you can shatter the blocker rings.

I haven't had the car long but so far I haven't noticed any issues with it. I have read the same thing tho. I've had 3 t-5 transmissions and idont notice any difference. I'm going to replace the Hurst shifter with a MGW and that will smooth it up some more also. Or so it has in the past.

Well like I said...I have no issues with mine. The short throw will help, obviously, with how far I have to move the handle to shift. As for smoother than a t-5, not that I can tell.

I mean the speed from gear to gear, but yea the shifter won't fix notchyness. My brothers notorious mt-82 in his new 5.0 cleaned up real nice with the burton kit, it's smooth and direct.

I've also heard the putting carbon fiber syncros will smooth it up a lot. I may actually do that in the future. All i need is a kit and directions and I'll do it muself.

Synchro rings wont' do much for a TKO, its an inherent design flaw in the transmission itself. I had a TKO in my 95 and I wanted to set it on fire, I HATED that damn thing. If you don't notice the difference between it and a T-5 then something was wrong with your T-5. The T-5 should fall into gear with the lightest pressure at any RPM and the fresh/low-mileage ones I've had in the past confirm this.

I would never have a TKO again ever, if I had a 5.0 it would be an Astro A5 all the way. Light, strong, smoooooth T-5 action, .58 final drive ratio there honestly is no reason to use any other trans. Or you can also do a built 3650 behind a 5.0 with the bellhousing delete plate it bolts up to any TKO style bellhousing. With all the stuff out now I would dump a TKO in about 2 seconds and get something else but YMMV. If yours is smooth and powershifts well consider yourself really lucky and roll with it. Not everyone has the same definition of smooth though.

I have heard understanding the concept of how a manual works is easier than an automatic, but manual transmissions are harder to rebuild. My automatic has a carbon fiber overdrive band.

Overdrive should never never NEVER be used when the car is under power.

It means that if you are going to stomp on it from a roll on the highway you hit the "OD OFF" button first and then have fun. The computer SHOULD downshift on its own but if you did manage to put a lot of power through it while it was still in OD you can royally **** something up.

Yes I know this. Whenever I'm doing 45ish and I'm about to turn off in to my town I give it some input so it's not a dry shift and turn overdrive off and it makes a wonderful downshift noise and my exhaust crackels. I only use overdrive if I'm going 45+

I will definitely keep this on mind. This is my first TKO and I've only had it a few weeks. So far I'm really liking it a lot. I love how it shifts, I'm also liking the close gear ratio.
