big blocks and 5spds

I've been looking, and can't find anything definent. What's a good 5spd O/D trans that will live behind a 502. I don't plan on beating it regurally, but enough that I don't wanna be replacing trans every couple yrs. Thanks

And if 600 isnt enought for you, MMR can upgrade them to 750 or 900. They run them in a turbo mustang that runs 8.99.

I have an old TKO500 in my 59 Elky-----454HO
Just put a TKO600 in the 66 Elky---but it is going behind a 305 or 307

FWIW---I like the TKO----altho the 1st gear in the 500 is real short (3:27).
That 1-2 shift happens REAL fast
