DOES ANYONE OUT THERE HAVE EXPERIENCE W/ TCI TRANS. IN MODS? HOW DO YOU LIKE IT? HOW DOES IT COMPARE TO BERT/BRINN AND STANDARD SHIFT 3 AND 4 SPEEDS? ANY INFO WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. I AM THINKING OF GETTING A TCI JUST WANTED SOME OTHER COMMENTS AND OPINIONS.

I ran TCI for 4 years and they have been great trannies. If you buy one you will know that you have top of the line stuff in their products.

I have ran the same TCI tranny for 1 1/2 years now. it was a used tranny when i purchased it freshly rebuilt. Havent had any troubles with it. Putting same tranny in new car this season. TCI is or will be having a new type valve body coming out soon, last i heard it was still under R&D. Check out the web site: www.tci.com They have a circle track section with trannies and parts. If you go with a powerglide i highly recommend a TCI Circlematic.

Is a TCI better than a Bushore?

Where does a tucker fall into this. And also do a lot of people run these types of auto's over stick combo's. Performance wise can the be competitive against manuals& berts and brinns. Thanks

does the circlematic tranny have adaptors for a ford. Also, how much does it cost or where could I find a used one, anybody? Thanks

I'm sure they make an adapter for a ford. I know they have them for mopar, so i would say they would for a ford. Not sure if it is listed on their web site.
As far as a used tranny, don't know of anybody off hand, put if i do i'll pass it on.

I have ran one for a 1.5, it's been great. I think they are as good as anything else out there!

We do make and adapter kit to put a Glide behind a Ford motor. You would need the adapter plate number CMP5291 and the pump drive kit 745100 and you can use the stock flywheel. The adapter plate is 1/4" aluminum and can also be used as the rear engine plate.

ss11, i still have the car. It has been totally redone from front to back, Racemart put all new 2002 changes and updates on it. It has all new interior, and I have just recently finished putting new body on. Car is like a new one. I will be starting season out with it since its almost time for racing. our first outing is March for the coca cola classic. If interested in car e-mail me or leave a private message and we can talk.

Hey G17 I have a couple of powerglides that i ran this past season. I can get them gone throgh and built up for racing if you want I'll talk to my dad about it. The only problem I had was busting a case but that was my fault for not checking to bolts that the tranny bolted up to the block. Powerglides are a real good tranny just finding a good case is the problem.

I have been running the powerglides with the TCI Circlematic valvebody since '94 and have never had a problem that was the trannys fault. Just run a good cooler and mount it where it can get good air flow!!!
