1987 Pontiac Grand Prix - Project: G-Force One: THE ENGINE
Mock-Up Engine Contd. The photo of the back side of the drivetrain gives us a good shot of the Quick Time bellhousing joining the engine and transmission together.
G–Force One's transmission is a unit from D & D Transmission and is a custom built Camaro T56 with all the upgrades to support over 800 horsepower reliably.
The clutch transferring all this power is sourced from a ZR1 and will be matched with a Lingenfelter flywheel.
