Transbrake Questions

Hello, was just wondering if anyone here was familiar with transbrakes and/or use them in their hotrod. I have a quick question about running a transbrake setup and how to go about it.

I have a TH400 with a transbrake and a manual reverse valve body and was thinking about installing it in my 87 camaro with a 383. My question was what precautions/ upgrades should I make to the car or drive train to handle the durability required to use a transbrake? Stall converters, driveshaft, axels ect...

Typical trans brake valve bodys operate at higher pressures than street valve bodys. The shifts are very firm and firmness of the shift will depend on the stall speed design converter you need for your combo.

A larger trans oil cooler is often suggested too , again depending on the converter stall and your combination
Dont worry how old you are... it is the mileage on your body that adds up.
