Has anyone out there used a Mastershift bumpstick on a th350 with a gearvendor? I cant decide if I want a tremec stick or gearvendor for 69 camaro. I think gearvendor would be great if I could shift it like a 6 speed automatic.
I haven't used a gearvendor, but word has it they are pretty stout they can take some horse power.The Tremacs are as good as your pocket book. The more torque you make the stronger the Tremac you'll want to purchase. I myself if I didn't have a bad knee I would have a 6 speed Tremac or Richmond Gear. But that's my 2 cents.Bob
Figure out your engine's powerband (is it wide, or narrow like a small displacement engine's usually is?) then look at the different gear ratios availible...you want something that won't drop your engine out of its powerband when you shift at your normal shift point into the next highest gear.A narrow powerband wants close ratio gears, from one gear to the next, but a wider powerband will take the spread of wide ratio gearset in your transmission.as for stick versus auto, you gonna take this vehicle into traffic often?since you're using a TH350, you may want to consider a Th700R4 or Th200R4...simple, just as strong, shorter if you don't want a custom balanced driveshaft (if you tend to go over 80mph, a balanced driveshaft is a good idea, and less rotational weight helps a lot) and you still get overdrive.
Just because you can't do it...doesn't mean its impossible
