    FOR SALE: New*** built Tremec T-56 magnum

    The closer 1st gear is to 1 to 1 (4th gear, no od's included), the closer/shorter the gear spread (rpm drop between shifts), 2.66 is closer to 1 to 1 than 2.97......... In the "old world", a 2.32 top loader is close ratio, a 2.78 is wide ratio, same rules apply. R

    20” Shelby 50th Anniversary SuperSnake Wheel pics

    These wheels fit the 2007-2014 GT500 as long as you do not have the 6 piston Baer rear calipers., they are designed for the smaller Wilwoods..........They do not fit the Baer 6S Extreme rear's......I say they do not fit, there is not the .100 clearance between the caliper and the wheel that Baer...

    Requesting opinion on original KR wheels..

    There are many KR's changing hands right now and there have been for the last few years. I agree that the tires are worth zero for street use, but if someone has a KR that has been used (a few miles) and has had the usual tire replacement, wheel dings etc. and they are interested in having a...

    Tremec Magnum XL swap

    I have looked at this swap and seen it for $4K + or -. I would also do the 2.66 first gear if/when I go the XL direction. If my car still had it's oem 2008 3.31's I would probably choose the wider ratio first gear option (is that a 2.97?) for the XL, but with my 3.73 axle gear, the better choice...
