Bolt An 8-Speed Transmission In Your Gen III HEMI Swapped E-Body!


Bolt An 8-Speed Transmission In Your Gen III HEMI Swapped E-Body!
Gen III HEMI Swaps are all the rage, and slamming one into your E-Body Mopar is a great power and performance improvement, but deciding which transmission to run and how to fit it in the car have been an issue for some owners. Thanks to this new bracket from Hooker BlackHeart, you can bolt the 8HP90 8-speed automatic right into one with no cutting, drilling, or welding. It’s a true bolt-on and it is super heavy duty.
Here is all the info from BlackHeart:
This new Hooker BlackHeart transmission crossmember is part of the most comprehensive line of Gen III Hemi swap components available for the Mopar E-body. This BHS591 crossmember adapter plate allows the installation of the popular 8HP90 8-speed automatic transmission when used with the BHS567 crossmember. No cutting or drilling is necessary; just bolt it in the OEM location using the supplied hardware. The modular design allows the use of several different transmission options without the need to buy or fabricate a different crossmember – simply change to a different adapter plate and the driveline and u-joint alignment have been preset to the corresponding transmission. Use this transmission adapter with a the popular GM style transmission mount for its compact design that allows for better ground clearance than the OEM crossmember (Hooker part number 71223029HKR or 71223030HKR – sold separately). Solid 3/16″ steel construction and black coated finish provides long lasting performance and good looks.
