I'll stick with Jamie on this one!!!!
Think you might live long enough to get one?

Stick with the T56 Magnum, you'll be glad you did, aftermarket 5 spds have been done for so long now they're "old school", the T56 is the best choice you could make for your vehicle, the Passon 5spd fills the niche for those not wanting to modify their vehicle's floor/frame/crossmember/etc/etc and or looking for a no skills needed bolt in

Got the same call, They were updating the list to people that were still interested. So I knew now that I was on a shorter list.


BUT update, got a second call and I have reached the top of the list. At least e-body list. My trans is now coming my way !!

I just assumed that since you said you "shouldhave it in around a month" on the 4th of August that you would be expecting it by the 4th of September......

How much money do you thing it cost to finance this major undertaking?
It's deep into 6 figures. Where do you think this money came from?
Do you have six figures to finance this operation. Put up some money or be quiet. whistling

Having torture tested Jamies 4 speeds for many many years on the road course [130mph+] I can attest to the quality of the products and the integrity of the business.

I have consulted with Jamie on this project from the beginning. I am not at liberty to divulge the details but you topless need to quit WHINING and go away along with the rest of you so called enthusiasts polluting this thread.

No transmission for you! troll





Very well said !!!!
This business venture does cost money and I'm surprissed that he is still in business.
Seven years to produce a product that is still on backorder has to put a major dent in his revenue.
Of course I'm a keyboard junky so who gives a sh!t.

Sorry, but couldn't agree more. Not a single one of us has any concept whatsoever as to what it takes/took to undertake something like this. A guy with a more or less one man shop has designed from scratch, built from scratch, and is now producing a transmission that fits our cars, where the rest of the industry more or less ignored us.

Could you do this? Could any of us? You think this was easy, in terms of time, money and energy spent? I think it was [censored] heroic, and I couldn't conceive of doing it in my wildest dreams.

He has done it, and is shipping transmissions, albeit far behind schedule and slowly. Like that has never happened before, at any time in history, in any industry?

I got my A-855 home last week. Will do the 5 spd swap over the winter.
I support Jamie & I fully expected the long wait for this type of venture.

Rather then sit around and complain, I prepared for the anticipated long 5 year back order list, by installing a 2.94 ratio rear gear, matched to a NOS ultra wide ratio Mopar 833 4 speed with all NOS gears & cluster etc. Jamie also hooked me up with parts. My 383 cuda still accelerates good and is very driver friendly because this combo has very low 3.09 1st gear & slightly lower 2nd, 3rd normal & 4th is normal 1:1 direct. So I therefore have a poor-mans substitute for O.D., which works great at city or Hwy speeds. This wide ratio 4 spd teamed up with 8.75 rear pkg will be offered up for sale late winter or early next spring if anyone is interested or would like more information. ps...I also have another complete set of good used ultra wide ratio 4 spd internals if anyone is interested in building/ converting their own smile
thanks DOUG.

I'm happy to say that I just replaced the a833 18 spline 4 speed in my 70 V-Code Track Pak Roadrunner. I am taking a 90 mile trip tomorrow to a shop to look into going from my 3.54 to a 4.10 gear for my Dana 60. The short ride I've taken so far has me very excited about the a855. The shifts are very solid and precise. The synchros work great. The best thing so far is that I went from 3500 RPMs @ 75 mph to 2250.
Thanks Jamie for all you do for the Mopar community and for your outstanding and one of a kind, unequaled, exceptional a855 transmission. My car isn't numbers matching, if anyone-ANYONE-has a classic numbers matching 3 pedal car and wants a 5 speed, the a855 is the ONLY choice. I chose it for its outstanding specifications, build quality, choice of components and materials. I am very excited about the trip tomorrow. Having a .70 final gear and dropping 1250 RPMs is great and makes driving on the highway a much much more enjoyable experience.

Using a rpm calculator, looks like I am going to install a 4.10 ring and pinion gear set in my Dana 60. I will still be 700 RPMs less at 75 than I was with my 3.54 and original 4 speed. I have no desire for top speed,but 1/4 mile performance and fun cruising on the street is where it's at for me.
