This video is the conclusion of the TKO600 transmission install.

Just as a recap, I decided to go with a TKO600 over the T-5 I was running because of how much power my engine made on the dyno. It appeared that the T-5 was not going to be able to handle the 622lbft of torque that engine put out. I’m told the TKO600 will handle this power just fine.

I also cover the installation of a steel bell housing as well as a new transmission crossmember in this series. I hope you find it entertaining and educational.

  1. Ditto on dial in the bell housing get off set dowels next day order a couple of off set sizes there cheaper than a new trans especially if you use a roller bearing in crank end to nose shaft

  2. Note your feet location in a Fairmont negates the need for a blow proof bell housing… And this thing turned into a massive money pit fast.

  3. I’m in the process of doing very close to the same build. I went nitrous with a Fitech power adder, nx Gemini twin plate, max 4 progressive with sone extra safety features… would you trade for an on3 system or keep what I have…. ?

  4. Would honda urea grease be better than lithium for the throw out bearing i heard lithium grease drys out so i didn't use it on mine

  5. Eric checking the edges of the former mount her cut off. Grinding away anything that would cut you up, and makes a joke about ensuring to get all the sharp edges now, while there with the grinder…
    Awesome, somewhat, camera-man focuses on other old mount spot that Eric has decided looked good enough to not need grinding; even though he was standing right there with a grinder in his hand…
    Only somewhat awesome for not also verbally pointing out that yes, you are standing right there with a grinder. So maybe turn around and ground away the super sharp edges on the other former mounting point.

  6. Aw man I was getting into this video series Eric, I wish you would have made a part 3 to show where you cut the hole in the floor and see how that bad boy performs!

  7. That looks damn sexy. I don't know if you plan to or not, but I would weld those backing plates on the transmission mounting bracket onto the "frame" when you do the final installation. Loose things like that always makes me nervous, maybe I am just being anal. I've been watching all of your "FairStang" videos (yes, FairStang, 'cause it looks like a Mustang and a Fairmont had an affair and had an illegitimate child and this is what it grew up to become, a little Ford bastard child) and I must say I am impressed and entertained by what I have seen. It's even given me a few ideas of my own on my projects. Keep up the great work and can't wait to watch the rest of the videos.
