Keisler 5spd kit in 67

Just finished installing Kiesler's TKO600 kit in my 4spd equipped '67. Overall it's an amazing kit that I'd recommend to anyone. But be prepared for extensive tunnel mods even if you have a factory 4 spd tunnel (like I did). You can see from the pictures how much bigger the tremec is compared to the Muncie, especially on top. I'm in NH and haven't driven yet since it's middle of winter and roads are covered in salt.....not to mention I'd probably never get back up my driveway and into the garage. I did go thru the gears on the jackstands though and everything seems smooth so far. I've got 3.90s in the rear with 255/60/15s......75mph was about 2300 rpm. I love winter, but can't wait to try this baby on the highway come spring. I'm also psyched for the lower 1st gear.....the 2.20 1st in the M21s are such a dog. What engineer decided to put a close ratio trans in a muscle car with gobs of torque and was never intended for road racing?

Looks nice! I would love to put a 5 speed in my 67 convert 4speed 400ho, but i don't want to change the car it has all the original sheet metal. Question, I see 255/60/15 does it look like there is enough room to put 295/50/15 BFG's back there or did the 255's take up all the room?

I'll check in the next few days and let you know about max tire size. Of course it will vary a little based on your exhaust location, suspension, etc, but I'll let you know what I think I can fit on my car. I've been meaning to do it anyway because I'd like to updgrade to 17" wheels at some point.

Nice job, did you use a hydraulic clutch or mechanical. I am in the process of putting the TKO 600 in my 66 and thinking about hydraulics.

I used the factory mechanical clutch setup. Just had to get a new clutch disc for the 26 spline input shaft.
