Steeda Tri-Ax Shifter for the Tremec 3650

We knew right from the start what the first modification to our Project Bullitt would be – the now infamous Steeda Tri-Ax shifter. Before the arrival of our Bullitt, we had not yet driven a car with the new Tremec 3650 transmission. We knew that this tranny would be a much improved version over the older T45. Tremec states that this is actually not a re-designed T45, but rather a new tranny designed from the ground up. Within the first 3 days of having our Project Bullitt, we put over 1400 miles on it.

This can be done by using several different exhaust combos, shorty or full length headers, H or X pipe, using dumps or tail pipes, etc. Well, the owner of our 1995 Mustang GT project car, Jeremy, wanted to make his Mustang sound unique. Not wanting the famous Flowmaster sound, Jeremy has opted to keep the stock mufflers for now. One of the cheapest ways to change the tone of the stock exhaust is replacing the stock , restrictive headers (see fig 1). In a quest for more horsepower, replacing the stock headers is a must, especially for those Stangers with modified motors. Jeremy went out and purchased a set of BBK unequal length shorty headers from Brother’s Performance Outlet.
