  2. Forget it! No trust. No faith. Not worth the high stakes gamble.

    Considering this:
    A855 - 5 Speed

    What is the general point of view of the efficacy of the 855?

    I'm 'on the list'. I have always had my reservations about the meaning of that..if there is any meaning to it at all. I have the coin. I have been thinking of stirring the pot to find out something other than what I get from the 'no stock' banner on the purported mfg's website.

    I'm out.

    I asked here a bit ago about the "big" Toyota 5 speed---ironic, you cannot install a 5 speed out of a 'tiny' foreign car in an A body without hacking up the floor of the A body!!!

    I already have one that I haven’t used yet, before matthon’s thread came about. So once I get my car going Again, I’ll just have to wait and see what happens. IF I have problems, I’d probably send it to Paul at High Performance Transmissions in Florida.
