for those who want a hardcore mid-engine 5spd transmission that can handle big torque (rated at 650tq) costs about $10k new
I got this technical drawing, thought it might be useful to the group

the actual price is cheaper when you call
recession discount maybe, I was quoted 10% discount I'm pretty sure.
It's not much different than a built G50 price, but it's built specifically for mid engine big hp

Is a KEP style adapter assembly required to mate to SBC or LS series engines?
The problem (for me) is the 9.830" distance from axle CL to the mounting face. That distance is slightly over 8" on the 915. For me the 1.5+ distance becomes problematic.

No adaptor needed for the Mendeola. The adapter for the Porsche is about .75 thick for a SBC.

There is another transmission coming out in a couple of months that will be even better than the Mendeola and the price may be better too.

didnt even know griffin existed.
might be a nice upgrade from the audi 016 in the future
after some consumer testing and feedback.
I always buy the "next" generation product when a new
product is invented, like the iphone, i waited for the iphone 3gs
instead of buying the first one, the day it was released.

I've been following this guy for some time. He started building transmissions in the early 90's so the concept has been tested and I see no reason why this one won't be successful. He really understands what this market needs.
