Default Auto or Lenco

We are running the 5:30 heads up class, right now we are running a glide and running consistent 5:30's , the question is will a Lenco 4 speed make the car run quicker and if so how much.

I can't see how anything you shift by hand could be more consistant than a 1 shift automatic with air/electric shifter. I know nothing about lencos but looks like the more times you shift the more chance for error.

Just my 1 cent.

Looks like we are installing the lenco, I think the fun factor will be worth it!!!!!

A lenco will absolutely be quicker because you are not losing power through a torque converter. They are quite expensive though, my neighbors just bought one and it was 12,000 with no bell housing or clutch.

lenco is making a street/strip trans, it was costly but it realy
takes any traditional looking car and makes it transform into
a racecar the way the lenco takes all the room on the consol
but i heard it is the trans for racing, i went with a TCI th400 8)

Default lenco

if You are going to be putting a lenco in you might want to give G-force,or Liberty a call with a lenco you will loss power compared to a liberty or a g-force you do not loss power like you do with a lenco we have a 292 c.u in small block chevy with a G-force clutchless 5 speed running 9.40's in 1/4 and it is just as connsent as a powerglide as long as you are on your shift points everytime
