    5.7 Hemi in 66 Charger

    I have not done a trans swap in decades, so it was a real challenge. Still, it was a lot of fun. My dad came over and helped with the project and it was a lot of fun to work on the car with him again. I've done almost all of the work on the car by myself and I kinda' like it that way, but Dad...

    5.7 Hemi in 66 Charger

    There are a lot of kits out there from places like American Powertrain, Modern Driveline, and Silver Sport Transmissions. They will sell you a kit with everything that you need. I did the TKX conversion a few months ago. It was a lot of work, but I'm really happy with the result.

    QA1 lower control arms.

    I have QA1 LCAs. I tried mounting a Summit-branded sway bar made by Hellwig. It had 90 degree tabs that bolted to the shock mounts (like these). The problem I ran into was that the sway bar ends interfered with my QA1 strut rods, so I sent it back. It might work with narrower, stock-style...

    hot hedders

    Some MSD straight plugs can be bent quite a bit. They call them "Multi-Angle" boots. I don't know if that is what you have, but if it is, you might be able to gain a little clearance with a little creative bending. I did that to gain a little clearance for the header on my 360. I also added a...

    I have a set of these shackles from Hotchkis. This might get you where you want to go. I bought mine from Summit and they don't have the Hotchkis logo so they look pretty stock on the car.

    Carburetor stumble

    Sorry guys, I missed the AFR reference on my first pass through the thread. It looks like lean stumble to me. I would make sure that the accelerator pump arm was properly adjusted. If it is, then I would go up a couple of sizes on the squirter (accelerator pump discharge nozzle) to see if that...

    Carburetor stumble

    It looks like you have been chasing this issue for a while. It might be time to get a good, wideband AFR meter to give you a better idea of what's going on. A stumble like you describe is usually too much or too little fuel. Either condition can usually be resolved with a little carb...

    Silver Sport 5 speed Manual Transmission kit thoughts

    I went with American Powertrain, but I think they are all about the same (AP, SST, Modern Driveline, etc.). I love my TKX! It's a lot of work and a lot of learning if you have not done it before, but the 5-speed conversion has totally changed the character of my car. The biggest issue I had...

    Tremec TKX 5 speed vs. A-833 4 speed....

    I went with American Powertrain and have no regrets. Now that I have the TKX sorted, I'm glad I didn't go with an auto. I made a lot upgrades at once, so it has taken me a little while to everything sorted. I took the car out this past weekend and it's so much fun! My 360 was kinda' boring...

    Tremec TKX 5 speed vs. A-833 4 speed....

    I really don't know. I know that everything lines up if you use an auto console, but the manual console might not sit in the car the same way. The auto console does not sit exactly in the center of the car, it's actually a little toward the driver.
