Im tired of my 4speed tranny so im Looking to buy a 5speed dogleg for my 510.. let me know what u have.. im located in san diego ca

 

Tired of it? The dogleg has the exact same 1-4 gears as the 4 speed you have now. With an overdrive for out on the highway. It going to be just as tired.

The dogleg is a fine transmission with a 0.854 or 14.6% overdrive. For example... if cruise speed is 60 and you are revving 3500 RPM then this will be dropped to 2989 RPMs. On a small L16 motor this may show up as a small increase in mileage. There are limits to an overdrive though. It can drop the RPMs to a point where the motor is not making enough power to push the car through the wind resistance. You have to step harder on the gas opening the secondary. A car that has had a taller rear end ratio added like a 4.11 or 4.375 and now is using more gas than before will benefit from an over drive. You have more acceleration yet your overall highway mileage is still close to stock
