Is the plumbing on the outside of the trans for a hyd. clutch fork?

Did it come with the high torgue starter?

Does it have 930, 934, 934.5 or 935 drive flanges?

No the tq converter has to have atf run through it from  a small dry sump pump or an additional stage of the engine dry sump can be added for the tq converter fluid. I haven't decided which way I'll go. It came with a small Daly pump that Fortin recommends but I'm dry sumped engines and it would eliminate one belt/pulley PLUS if the belt broke the car would stop and MAYBE save the engine at the same time. Hmmmm
yup
 He said 934 but I haven't verified that. Any can be fitted to it.

Torque converter eh?

Is it air shift or manual?

Is it constant mesh with drive dogs like a motorcycle?

Do you run a motor kill or something for when it shifts?

I am really curious how it works like getting in and out of first or reverse with the converter loading the input shaft.

Very sweet!  Give us some details.  ;D

Yes.
Manual.
Yes.
Ignition interrupt.
Shut off engine ,engage reverse,shutoff engine,engage first.IF the engine idles low enough you don't have to kill engine. Most peeps will have to kill engine tho.
