Still needed to be finished and still does but that is next on the agenda for me once the race car is done.
Awesome

Good luck. I would love to bid if all of my money wasn't tied up in my current bus. I may have to research swapping a 5 speed Spicer into my 2001 Amtran.

As much as I drive in traffic a non synchro manual is not for me.. I need to swap my 545 out for a 1000 / 2000

an allison 1000 or 2000 series... they have a Lockup torque converter and alsdo an Overdrive gear..

reduces RPM's at light / moderate throttle and the lockup converter makes the Transmission run cooler / less lost power in the form of heat like the 545 does..

the AT545 allison is a bulletproff trans and mine works great.. im just thinking Upgrades..
