tremec or richmond
Hello, I have decided to replace my th350 trans. to 5 spd. but am undecided as to go with a tremec tr-3550 or richmond street 5.
The car is a 67 camaro and engine will hopefully have around 370-400 hp and around 400 ft.lbs torque. any help or any advise would be thankful.

well i thought my mind was pretty much made to go with the muncie m22 but the more i research these 5 speeds tremec and richmond i dont know jeeze:confused: tremec or m22 ....m22 or tremec the m22 is half the weight of the tremec and a couple a bucks cheaper. so i guess my question is if your putting together a street car whats it gonna be???? nothing to crazy sb 350 350/400 hp range:D so im just gonna latch on to this thread and see if i can get pushed off the fence:evil:

I like the Richmond concept of stiff gears in the tranny, letting you run high gears in the rear to give you a great final drive in 5th ( or 6th) while keeping a strong launch.
I'd do the Richmond.
