new McLeod 5-speed manual
« on: March 07, 2010 - 09:43:31 pm »
FYI... I thought I would post this since I haven't seen anyone mention it.  McLeod is trying to come out with their own new 5-speed manual transmission.  The one article says it was designed with Mopar owners in mind because it should fit without cutting up the floorboards.

Ya that's important info.... I wonder how this tranny will compare to the Passon unit?
Passon was always #1 on my "radar".

Pretty cool, I hope they can sell enough of them to make it worthwhile.
