This video is the conclusion of the TKO600 transmission install.

Just as a recap, I decided to go with a TKO600 over the T-5 I was running because of how much power my engine made on the dyno. It appeared that the T-5 was not going to be able to handle the 622lbft of torque that engine put out. I'm told the TKO600 will handle this power just fine.

I also cover the installation of a steel bell housing as well as a new transmission crossmember in this series. I hope you find it entertaining and educational.
