I have heard of a company called Jeffco that makes similar transmissions specifically for street cars. The guy who runs the place used to work for Jericho I think (or was it Lenco?). They actually are made to fit in the stock TH350/400 or PG spot on first gen cars. They feature alluminum parts, are cheaper, and are four speeds. I haven't seen one running, but they are supposed to handle 1000 horses.

Bad things I have heard about the Jericho is that it is a real pain to downshift while driving. I don't know why that is, but it is what I have heard. The article I read on the Jeffco trans said that it was specifically made to be easier to downshift than other brands so that it would be more of a street trans.

The Jerrico has straight cut gears and is VERY noisy. I use to rebuild them for the #27 and #37 Busch Grand National cars of Brewco Motorsports. They are very nice transmissions, but not for street use. They are basicly a redesigned T&C Ford toploader.

I agree with Big Gear, I have run them in street cars but you gotta shift'em really fast and down shifting can be quite a chore. Not really reccomended.....

Jeffco is here in San Diego, and the boys are from Lenco (also here in SD). I have personally put 6 of these units into street cars and they WORK. One actually used a torqueconverter with a valve, rather than a clutch.
They also have a five speed available, but I dont think they are advertising that.

But all mentioned above were spennnnnnndy...
