    bob, we WILL be ready for race season. Should have tranny and clutch out tomorrow and get the clutch discs off to be rehubbed. Then I can put my passion 5 gear in

    Waiting to see how you like that 5 speed trannie. At least you don't have to change any thing or do you. Just to ask is the fifth gear hooked to the reverse linkage. Or how dose the shift pattern work. Russ.

    The passion 5speed uses a Hemi 18 spline input shaft. My current 4 gear uses the smaller 23 spline input so clutch discs need to be rehubbed also new hydraulic clutch throw out with bigger center. With changing rear diff not sure yet if need different length driveshaft. Shifter is also different. Will post pics as I get to each step

    My headers looked worse than yours before. Wish I had taken a before pic. You could wrap them or try VHT high temp paint. Mine still look good from a few years ago. Had them sandblasted first.
