Liberty gear - Pro-shifter toploader

Hi Guys....

I'm building a hot 351C and hope to put out approx 650hp.

I'm looking for a manual transmission and i've come accross a "Liberty Gear Pro-Shifted Toploader" and i was wondering if anyone knew of any of these in service, or have heard on how they perform.

I have found one in the US but im unsure if it will withstand 650+hp, 6000rpm launches, 10.5" slicks with 3500lbs...

Thanks

Shane

Yes it will handle the power no problem at all.

they are a one way dog box not suitable for the street

Re: Liberty gear - Pro-shifter toploader

by one way do you mean 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 3 - 2 - 1 shifting?

how much hp do you think it could take?

i know of a RX3 over here doing 9's through one of these boxes so i was quite sure it would cope

what are these things worth?

can you just buy the cogs and modify a toploader rather than send the whole box from the states?

cheers

Re: Liberty gear - Pro-shifter toploader

By one way, i mean you can upshift, but not downshift. I think you can get a newer version that shifts both ways, but i'm not sure. Jerico certainly make one.

And you dont need liberty shifting to run 9's. A standard toploader will do.

Re: Liberty gear - Pro-shifter toploader

So how would i get from top gear back to 1st or neutral?

Im not so much concerned about the strength of the toploader, more so the ability to shift at 8000rpm

Re: Liberty gear - Pro-shifter toploader

You do realise that these things are worth around $10k?

Re: Liberty gear - Pro-shifter toploader

I dont think so.. i'm talking a Ford Toploader that has been Pro-Shifted by Libertys Gears.

Theres one in the US that i hope to land for approx $1800Aud brand new.. or a second hand one here in Perth which i believe the person wants $1500 or so for.

Re: Liberty gear - Pro-shifter toploader

A mate has a liberty shifted bull nosed top loader sitting under the bench. Unfortunately they wont fit behind a small block (the input shaft is too short)
