I don't have one of the RS trannys.
I do however, have the Keisler Tremec TKO 600 in my 66 Elky
Also have a Tremec TKO II in my 59.

Pretty happy with the Tremecs so far-----shifting characteristics are quite a bit different than the Muncie shifters tho.

The RS 400 and the RS 500 are now available for shipping, and I believe that they can locate the shifter to a correct location for many cars.

The RS 600s started shipping, but then stopped as they seem to have discovered a quality issue with something inside.

Pretty sure that Keisler can provide a TKO 600 that will go right in a Camaro with no modifications to your car.
But, don't try to order the RS 600 for a while yet-----some people have been waiting nearly a year for that trans

Thanks for the info. I'm only around 450hp at peak so I'll have to pass on the wallet buster tko 600.
