Answering the call of the wild

Transmissions are available
Yes the price is now $7,000.00 - there is a significant cost increase to manufacture and some new vendors are online improving the dimensional tolerances of the parts
Many would would like it outsourced to china for a lower price etc just to be cheap.

Quit whining, step up or stay on the porch.

I just spent a day in Capser WI with John Huff as we have known each other thru mopars since the Car Craft Street Machine Nationals 1983. Small world btw
John has really cool cars that get driven and the trans test cars are just as cool. I talked to Jamie after my visit as we know each other too... Really? shruggy wave

I was surprised by a call from Jamie this morning. My spot came up and I will be picking up my 855 at Carlisle.

TKX still not proven on a mass scale, however at half the price, worth looking at it as an alternative.

A855 is awesome in that it looks like an A833. However, who is going to be looking underneath your car and how often (and who cares?)?

One thing to remember is whether spare parts 5-10-20 years from now will be available or not.

Neither is the 5SR/A855 5 spd, seems it's had more problems just "getting out of the gate", never mind functioning properly ..... I've read enough customer complaints on other forums with the 3 entities involved that it's not worth the investment IMHO

You really can't get better than a Tremec as far as a reliable, mass produced aftermarket transmission goes. They have the facilities, the engineers, the track record, the distribution, the warranty, ... So what, with the TKX you have to cut one tiny slit in the sheet metal and weld a little strip of metal for clearance. You can get one at your front door tomorrow morning from 20 different retailers and it's warrantied and has replacement parts ready for order. Oh, it's almost half the price! And better.

Passon should have just stuck with selling repair and restoration items. I don't mean that in any derogatory way either. I buy from him with any need I have that he can provide for in the 4-speed and pedals areas.

Are people who waited on the list being given a better price than guys who are just in off the street?
