Gear Ratio's for 4 and 5 speeds.

Post by RyonPro1 » Fri Feb 03, 2006 8:03 pm

O.K. folks. I have a Top Sportsman style tube frame car with a powerglide transmission. I am wanting to convert it to a 4 or 5 speed. There are several used deals out there but if I bought one and then had to change transmission ratios the cost might end up being the same as buying a new tranny. So, what is the best way to come up with what transmission ratios I will need? Just trying to make the right purchase the first time. Any help would be great. Thanks! Shawn

Call Tex Racing and ask them for recommendations, they have a very knowledgeable staff and should be able to get you pointed in the right direction.

Some other places to check:
G-Force Racing Transmissions 717-202-8367
Lenco Racing Transmissions 800-854-2944
Jerico Performance Products 704-782-4343
Liberty Gears 313-278-4040

All of the above companies make 4 and 5 speed transmissions and have vast experience with different applications.

The easiest thing to do is to use the quarter mile performance program on one of the pages at:

You can try out the different transmission ratios and see which works the best for your car without spending a dime.
