I did not like the factory set-up thru the carb linkage. so I installed a custom spring loaded button on the right hand side of the t-handle shifter. neatly concealed and actually looks stock . It allows you to switch from low stall to high stall at any time. The transmission has been serviced and performs well. Custom trans cooler lines were made to feed the auxiliary mounted transmission cooler which is mounted neatly behind the grille. These lines have "hand sewn" high-temp covering on them as they pass close to the exhaust from the factory. The rear axle is a proper BOP with a 3:08 ratio. overhauled with a new limited slip.
