Full-Manual Competition Transmission

Designed for the extreme high performance street or all out race car, the TCI Automotive Torqueflite 904 Full Manual Competition Transmissions will give you consistent shifts as well as complete control over shift points. Reverse shift pattern, they require no vacuum hookups or kickdown linkage. This means there are no external linkages to be purchased, which saves some expense. The increased line pressure provides a harder, quicker shift and eliminates the lag time between shifts produced by automatic shift transmissions.
