Push-Button Programming
Classic Instruments' new SN74 Module makes it easy to precisely calibrate most all electronic speedometers with just a touch of a button. The module wires in-line between the transmission's pulse signal or ECM output and your speedometer head. It converts all known signals and includes an 8,000 ppm signal output to control your electronic cruise control. Simply push the button, drive a measured mile, and push the button again. The module mounts out of sight in any convenient location and the button switch is easily stashed behind your dash or removed after calibration is complete.

Don't Stall
If the performance of a high-stall converter with the driveability of a low-stall converter is what you're looking for, then the PTGM18/258HS by Phoenix Transmission Products is the converter for you. With a flash stall speed of up to 3,200 rpm, it drives like a much tighter converter until you put your foot into it, then hang on! Combining a 10-inch, fully furnace-brazed bowl and turbine-hardened splines and drive hub with anti-ballooning technology, it has a fullsized 298mm heavy-duty clutch assembly and damper for solid, reliable lockup durability. It fits all 700-R4 and '93-98 4L60E transmissions without a removable bellhousing.
