CUSTOM SOLUTIONS 

We engineer solutions so you don't have to.

These two projects incorporate several unique solutions tailored to the specific vehicles and  their power plants.

CARBON FIBER SYNCRO'S

improve the “shiftability” of the Tremec TKO above 5500 RPM. This single improvement works well with LS engine applications and Ford Mod  motors – engines that spin efficiently to higher RPMs.

TKO 5-SPEED

Capable of supporting 600 ft/lbs of torque… the TKO600 will provide great reliability. The helical cut gears provide smooth and quiet operation, same as you would expect from a new production vehicle. All new Tremec transmissions come with a 1 year limited warranty from the date of first use.

HYDRAULIC CLUTCH

The “vehicle specific” Modern DriveLine LF Series Hydraulic Clutch Master Cylinder System provides smooth and easy clutch actuation. Detailed instructions and live tech support for all of our products are part of Modern DriveLine sales and service.

SHIFT RAIL UPGRADE

While the TKO series transmissions shift well,  there are modifications which can be made to ensure the gear you entend is the gear you get.

SIDE MOUNTED SHIFTER

The standard configuration of the TKO transmission places the shifter near the center of the tunnel.  Our side shifter modification works well to position the shifter as in the original in cars like the Corvette.

1963 CORVETTE

This 1963 Corvette sports a LS1 engine with a TKO-600 5-speed transmission package from Modern Driveline.  Check out a few behind the scene views during the build.

FANTOMWORKS

“At FantomWorks the process of building the car of your dreams takes our artisans one to two years of skilled labor to complete. The parts budget for a full restoration is driven by the market and can vary tremendously. If what you’re looking for is a shop to paint over blemishes and turn out a budget build then we are not your shop. Every day, in every way, our artisans are honing their craft to bring you the finest restorations possible.”
