Tremec magnum xl swap
I posted about this several months ago and a few people have wanted to know more about it. I posted this in another thread. Here it goes.
I got the transmission from and had the install done at Amp Performance igear is 2.97, .80 fifth, .63 sixth. I had the rear end re-geared *3.73, she rips through first and second, an axle shaft replaced, and the pan hard bar replaced also with the trans swap. I went with a McLeod RST clutch, this clutch is really great and worth the money. I do not remember what companies drive shaft i ended up with, it is aluminum. Total price with labor was $7,800, there is more that I'm not listing to try and keep this short. The transmission is performing better than expected so far, actually being able to feel the rpms, because of it being a direct top mount shifter, is exactly what should have been done in bringing the 5.0 back. If i wanted to feel like was in a cadillac i would have bought a ctsv. There is sounds that might scare some if you had never driven a pretty much "race" setup drivetrain before, or just dont have a more than average mechanical sense of what sounds are safe and which are bad. Anyone around Phx,az thats looking into this swap and would like to check it out is more than welcome PM me. Hope i answered your questions if you have any more lemme know
