Post T-10 or M-22?

Which tranny is most favorable? A Muncie M-22 or a Borg Warner T-10? What are the differences?

you will enevitably get guys inhere who swears to the m-22 rockcrusher, it has a little bit closer ratio than the t-10 and is slightly beefier but costs a pretty penny, ive seen them go for upwards of 800 dollars to peolle restoring old gm muscle. but the T-10 can take almost anything you throw at it, i ran one in a 4000 lbs. 66 impala 2dr SS with a modified 454 and 3.36 rear gears and i drove that car like an idiot, i even killed the centerforce clutch but never the T-10. so get a used T-10 from any 80 camaro and when add if it breaks (which i dont think it will) buy another, you can buy four or five T-10īs for the price of one good M-22.

but in these times i would get a T-56 6 speed overdrive and have a car that is manytimes more enjoyable.

hope it helps.

thanks for the help. I looked up the T-56, and it really looks awesome. I love the double overdrive! Any clue on a good way or place to pick one up cheap?

P.S. I see everywhere that its for GM F-Body's. How do I modify it for my A-Body Elky?

the only thing you need is the transmission from some crashed f-body, there should be plenty of those arround, most people use the engine and 4L-60E automatic for hotrods, so there should realy be some t- 56's left over.

you will need to purchase either a bellhousing (if you plan to go raceing) or an adapter. secondly you will need a crossmember (if you dont fabricate one yourself) and then cut a hole for the shifter..

if you are nuts about the original look i think hurst makes a shifter that exites in the stock fourspeed location and looks like the hurst fourspeed shifter as well.

good luck with it.

Are there any modifications necessary to swap a Borg-Warner t-56 for a t-10 in a 67 firebird 400?

i actually think you can buy a kit for that swap, but i dont think you should have anny bigger hastles than crossmember and some clutch engineering. my bet would be to swap to a hydraulic clutch setup and loose the linkage hastle all together. and some hurst or b&m short throw shifter and save for the shortened drive shaft you should be good to go
