    TKX Tremec 5 speed in a 68 Galaxie

    Wanted to let folks know, in case they are interested... Changing from C6 to a manual 5 speed, using new TKX. plenty of tunnel clearance, but since the stubby shift shaft sticks straight up, do need the full length original cut (for factory auto floor shifter) + some 3" forward front, for trans install. This very likely applies to 66-67, likely 65. FE engine.

    Very cool!
    You "feel" the difference because you want to "feel" the difference. Since you just spent money on the upgrade you "have" to feel the difference

    I'm looking to eliminate the double pump process I have to follow right now to get the pedal hard

    update, had to raise the trans some with spacers, to get in 'proper' height, so the 1.2" is .6", still plenty of space, no additional tunnel mods. Crossmember requires -0- mods, fits in same place, nice.
