I just traded my four-wheeler for a 302 engine block and performance cam and a auto tranny. Should i save up some more money and do a 5-speed swap? I would also like to say im short on cash what should i do?
First off, you now own a Ford so you better save LOTS of money. Although I love my manual tranny, I believe if you plan on racing, you would be better with the auto tranny. Missing a gear with a manual could easily cost you an engine and the race. I think anyone can drive a manual, but it takes someone with a special ability to properly race one with a standard H pattern shifter.(my grandmother could shift a Lenco with a lightning rod shifter) Just to let you know, I am looking for someone to teach me how.
