I know autos are faster, more consistent, etc... But I love to shift and drive my car.

I see that Carey Bales uses the GF2000. What's the difference between them besides 4 & 5 speed?

The 5 speed comes in either a vgated shifter or an H pattern. I have no idea why anyone would get a 4 speed manual trans. Obviously the vgated shifter isn't fun on the streets due to not being able to downshift. I've been very happy with my clutchless 5 speed. The gf5r is more than enough for anything 1200whp or below weighing 3000lbs or less.

Just got done doing my second gm auto and for the price you can't come close with anything else that will hold the power period. I picked up a built th350 for my second auto car for $325 and it's running awesome and the adapter plates are pretty inexpensive to adapt it. We were tuning on it this weekend for the first time with a test converter that was way wrong and it still felt amazing. Th400s are also cheap and way stronger than a 350 but they are a lot heavier rotating weight, that's the reason I went th350, but I might end up going with an aluminum internal 400 later because of the shear strength. The rpm that these motors turn is a big problem with the stock th350 but you can buy aluminum drums so you don't have to worry about that. I race with a couple guys that ran stock th400's with shift kits at 1300hp and 3400lbs with no issues.

Me personally I don't see why more people don't go auto, maybe because there isnt a lot of support out there yet? they are Cheaper and no more grinding gears and slipping clutches on the line or worrying about launching, let the converter and trans brake do the work. It does take some time adjusting the converter to get it 100% right but it saves thousands of dollars in the long run.

I also understand some people like shifting their cars but when you put a trans brake and manual valve body is an auto, you have to shift it manually

Just my thoughts and experience hope it helps

You can make an adapter plate for next to nothing. I have made a handful for these cars. Just a 1/4" thick aluminum with whatever bolt pattern bellhousing

I contacted you a while back about adapter plates but I wasn't able to get it from you. The flex plate is a little trickier than a 1/4" plate but I'm sure you already know that. Regardless neither were very expensive to have made compared to the standard options and twin disc

I know you need a flex plate with an auto but you still need an adapter plate. Flex plate isn't too complicated, just a little machining
