manual transmission please help
im planing to purchase a clutch kit for my 77 camaro, 355 cid, 10.5:1 head compression , 4 speed manual , 3.03 rear end
approximately 400 hp. i drive it only on holidays and some local 1/4 mile drag race .
this clutch kit is in my shopping card : McLeod Super StreetPro Clutch Kits 75224
due to my budget i have decided to go for : McLeod Super StreetPro Clutch Kits 75224
im planing to put TH400 with performance kit and 2500 stall in my camaro but i need to save some money , so this will happen next year .
till then im goind to use McLeod Super StreetPro Clutch Kits 75224 with manual transmission .
i have two transmission on hand :
1-4 speed saginaw no line on shaft
2-3 speed saginaw 3 lines on shaft
when budget is tide , i need to consider new options .
clutch kit is confirmed ,
power glide ratio is 1.82 1 and the saginaw 3 speed 3 line has gear ratio 3.5 1.89 1
so with 2nd gear launch its more or less similar top power glide launch .
good thing is the shift pattern than i can easily do power shift from 2nd gear to 3rd gear .
in theory it will work i assume .
currently im running 3.03 rear ratio, too low for 2nd gear launch .
i have two brand new ring and pinion with 3.73 and 4.11 ratio .
for good 2nd gear launch i go for 3.75 or 4.11 ?
