Among “old-timers”, the Muncie transmission commands a certain degree of respect. Sure, you could get a manual in tons of cars from GM during the 60's and 70's, but the Muncie was the one to have. Saginaw transmissions were cheaper, and worked admirably, but scattering gear oil on the pavement was a scary reality if…
But it only makes 230 hp out of 454 cubic inches!
Fucking brutal. There were always talks of it being closed down for the past 20 years or so but it was either hearsay or beat back by racers filling town meetings until the fire marshal shut it down.

For $10,000 you can get a ride along in his “NitroX2" top fuel dragster. He got bounced for using an NHRA chassis tag on a non-approved car (apparently).

You can easily live with an 8 pt bar as shown, and the side bars can be removable for street use (swing outs that are unbolted).…
It comes with a fucking transbrake. The car was designed to compete and win in a drag competition. I never thought I’d see the day when this kind of valve body made it into a production car. You could run a beefed up TR6060 but you’d bust more parts and not be nearly as consistent.
