      Mine just came yesterday, bought it from Bowler. Very happy with dealing with Bowler, and they threw in a free shifter so that's a plus!
      Can't wait to pull the TKO & compare it to the TKX, but it won't happen for another month or so. I'll try and post pics & compare the shifting between the two. I'm leaving the clutch and everything else the same for a true comparison.

      I just got mine as well, also from Bowler. Very impressed with how positive the shifter feels going through the gears.

      In the TKO I always used GM syncromesh fluid. Tje tkx came with a slip of paper that recommends "TREMEC HP MTF". It's expensive & out of stock online. Any substitutions?

      I'm curious as well. I'd call Tremec and ask...

      That's weird, even Summit only has 1 case of 4 bottles left in stock. I wonder why the shortage, I'm not sure who Tremec's OEM is on this stuff. Glad I have some extra from my last fill to get me by.

      The TKX has probably sealed the fate of the TH400 in my 70 Firebird. I had a TKO in my 68 and loved it. As soon as I can save to buy and ship (I'm in England) it will be three pedal fun!

      According to Bowler the GM syncromesh is fine, and they prefer the Royal Purple version. Tremec makes their own version, which is why they recommend it.
