Response to 5R55W-S 5 speed automatic
i ALSO thought of them being the next hot thing, however I can;t seem to find a way to "shift" them without spending a bit of money, and wire work. And then again, who would want to manually shift 5 or 6 gears, there is not enough detents for a MVB.
The VB is not traditional with "valves" and the solenoids do all the work.
the lack of matting options to SBF and whatnot is a bummer as well.
The guy who can come up with a way to fit one in a FOX MUSTANG or your 69, and make it a "simple" bolt in situation will hold the market for the "next big thing" however....my simple thoughts on why it won;t work is the AOD/4R are stronger, and accomplish the same goal more easy, still have the same OD.
If the trans had more than one OD....hmmm.
