How do you make the most sought-after roadster on the plant better?  Add a five-speed overdrive.  Whether you drive an original Shelby CXS series Cobra or one of many great replicas, Modern Driveline the Five-speed or Six-speed overdrive to give your Cobra legs.
Ford Toploaders are strong a
nd fit the cobra well and are fun to drive.  However, they lack an overdrive to allow these powerful road machines to pass everything on the road including the gas station.

& Mod-Motors too.

289 Small block COBRA – 5 SPEED CONVERSION PACKAGES

MDL Front shift T-5z single overdrive five-speed


Our front shift T5 five-speed is a perfect choice for small block power slab side CSX2000 series Cobras.
The T5 five-speed transmissions are compact, shift great, and run quiet, but don’t let the size fool you. T5 with its 2.95:1 first gear ratio with .63:1 OD can handle up to 450hp on street tires.
To place the shifter in the 289 Cobra location, we developed the front shift T5 with the shifter in the forward position make the transmission easy to shift.
Couple this with 289 Cobra short shift lever and OE looking five-speed knob, you would swear the Cobra was born with a five-speed.
Interfacing the T-5 behind a small block 289/302 is a matter of choosing one of our T5 bellhousings or adapter plates.
The stock clutch linkage can be retained or look at one of our hydraulic clutch conversion kits.  

If a .63:1 ratio (37%) overdrive is too much, we offer an optional .73:1 ratio (27%) to keep the motor in the right rpm band.

 


TKX Series 427-COBRA – 5 SPEED CONVERSION PACKAGES

As we all know the block-powered Cobra makes a lot of power!  This is where the Tremec TKX Five-speed comes in.
The TKX can easily handle up to 600lb-ft of torque and bolt up to a wide pattern Toploader bellhousing, when equipped with a shorten input shaft.
Using the shorten input shaft keeps the over-length of the TKX to 24″ so as not to make the already short drive shaft any shorter.
The shorter input shaft also aids with installation in such a tight tunnel area.
The TKX sport multiple shift positions to provide a true 427 look from the rear socket or 289 styles with a mid-shift position shifter. 

Enjoy up to 8000 RPM shifting with this All NEW 5-speed from Tremec
