When it was recently announced that Champion Cooling Systems partnered with Brand New Muscle Car (BNMC), of Tulsa, Oklahoma, to build Officially Licensed Yenko Continuation Camaros, Silver Sport Transmissions saw an opportunity to shift over to the Tulsa location and meet with BNMC president David Miller to talk about solutions to very common problems.
Silver Sport Transmissions is no stranger to the headaches of joining classic muscle cars with modern powertrain technology. Spending the past few years not only swapping Tremec transmissions into classic musclecars, Silver Sport has created the perfect combination of parts to get the job done in one kit. These aptly named PerfectFit Kits include brand new Tremec transmissions and every component needed to install five and six-speed Tremec gearboxes into classic musclecars, right down to the driveshaft, clutch master, and clutch slave cylinders.
As an Elite Distributor for Tremec transmissions, Silver Sport’s PerfectFit Kit saves a builder time and money. Providing kits that take away all the guesswork and fitment headaches, transmissions like the T-56 Magnum and TKO 500 now look right at home in nearly any transmission tunnel from the muscle car era. And they take the swap one step further by modifying the shifter to fit in the factory console, if so equipped.
For BNMC, this simplifies installations not only for the new Yenko Continuation Camaros, but the dozens of other dream car builds that it turns out each year. Swapping a modern transmission requires some ingenuity, and Silver Sport knows the right combination of crossmembers and shifter modifications to eliminate time spend searching for – or fabricating – the necessary components.
This partnership is a win-win for both companies, with Silver Sport providing the one-stop shopping experience for Tremec swaps. For those seeking to eliminate that third pedal under the dash, Silver Sport’s A41 automatic overdrive PerfectFit Kit for GM and Mopar builds also provides the same one-stop shopping experience for BNMC.
The two companies are now partners on some very exciting builds that include the aforementioned Yenko Camaros, Eleanor Mustang clones, and a host of other worthy GM musclecars from the not-so-forgotten era of brute horsepower. Because today’s builds are seeing nearly twice the horsepower we saw 40-50 years ago, you can be sure that these PerfectFit Kits can handle just about anything you throw at them.
BNMC was formed when Miller saw an opportunity to build classic musclecars with all new sheet metal and suspension components, as well as a choice of drivetrains. BNMC brings the car owner back to the days of RPO codes and options, allowing customers to pick and choose what components they want in their builds.
This makes each BNMC build seem more like it came off a steroid-induced assembly line – right down to the brakes, wheels, and tires. You can find Champion Cooling Systems at both Silver Sport and BNMC keeping all of these builds running cool, because when it comes to classic muscle cars, these three companies are all about making classics cool, and keeping them that way.
