It's a Gear Vendors auxiliary overdrive.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

What Snopro said...
With the 4.88 rear end gears, the OD unit drops the final drive to 3.81, so I won't be buzzing the big block so bad and might even make it between gas stations

More progress on the frame, center members installed as well as the pedal/booster/master assy. Had to split the front of the 2x3 member on the drivers side to get around the pedal arm. Lots of bolts on the tranny crossmember because it is also a structural member - still need to add an upper bridge above it to tie the center of the frame together.

Your frame is well thought out and very sturdy. Shouldn't be any twist in that one.

Looks great! Good timing on the booster....I've been asking for shots of boosters. I see you have a 2nd set of rails running from your trans bell housing area back to your kick ups.

Do you think I need something more to reinforce my frame in that area? I was going to use a center section and decided what I had wouldn't wok out well. What do you think? My frame is 2x4x3/16

Thanks Bob, twist is what I don't want, with 600 + HP going up front, I'm trying to keep it in one piece

The booster is always a pain it the butt when it comes to fitting frame members around it, but I always try to make some effort to put in some center structure in my frame - more is better theory....
