    Lance Norman's Mustang

    " Originally I ran this in my 65 Falcon. When I built the Mustang, the horsepower jump was substantial using a 527 ci big block, stretching the limits of your Comp unit. I got eight years out of this transmission so I am very happy with the product which is why I've upgraded to the Super Comp unit.
    Performance Automatics are a tough, durable transmission and I tell everyone that I'd put your product against any other C4 on the market."

    Electronic Cable Drive

    Performance Automatic is proud to announce its latest addition to our ever growing line of electronic transmissions accessories.

    Finally, the missing link between your muscle car’s original, cable-driven speedometer and swapped-in electronic transmission!
    Measuring a compact 5” x 4.1” x 2.15”, the new Electronic Cable Drive, or ECD-100 for short, allows the use of a mechanical-cable speedometer to be used in conjunction with a modern drivetrain which provides only an electronic output. Available with provisions for GM thread-on, GM clip-on as well as Ford clip-on style cables, the ECD-100 offers the utmost in adaptability. Supplied cable is 36” in length.
    Quiet operation from the powerful motor allows the user to place the module inside the cabin. The case is waterproofed, allowing it to alternatively be mounted under the hood, or even inside a fenderwell. Simple calibration with a remotely-mounted switch means there are no DIP-switches to hassle with; access to ECD module is not required! Industry-standard ‘measured-mile’ calibration as well as speed adjustment while driving, based on a GPS or other known-speedometer reading, keep setup ultra-simple.
    The ECD-100 uses PID control of the cable speed to provide quick, smooth operation as well as preventing overdriving or damaging the speedometer needle. Consider this the most precise and easiest to use cable-drive unit on the market!

    Speedo Interface

    Performance Automatic is proud to announce its latest addition to our ever growing line of electronic transmissions accessories.

    The SGI-5 Universal Signal Interface Unit can handle nearly any of your electric speedometer signal conversion and calibration issues. The SGI-5 can recalibrate 2,000 pulse per mile (ppm) through 250,000 ppm electronic speedometer pulse rates, either up or down. The SGI-5 is great for adjusting aftermarket and OEM electric speedometers on vehicles after changing rear end gears, tire sizes, or drivetrain changes affecting the speedometer.
    The SGI-5 is used as either a signal multiplier (up to 4X) or signal divider (up to 125X), making this unit extremely flexible for almost any application. While the SGI-5 is intended to correct only the signal feeding the electronic speedometer, in many cases where a speed signal is shared on a databus, the SGI-5 can instead correct the signal feeding the engine and transmission computers.
    If your vehicle is equipped with an anti-lock braking system (ABS), it is generally advised to ensure the signal reaching the ABS controller is not altered to eliminate any potential problems affecting control algorithms within the system. Some vehicles also utilize the output shaft speed to calculate transmission slip and lock-up. When a signal feeding the PCM is altered, this may cause the PCM to detect a constant slip. Consulting a service manual may be of assistance in determining the signal routing within the vehicle if the SGI-5 is decided to be used in a situation such as this.
    Unit measures 4" x 2.5" x 1" and is designed to be mounted inside a vehicle

    Another Happy Super Comp Customer

    Hi...I'm headed into my sixth season running a PA Super Comp. I've taken full advantage of the tranny's lifetime warrantee and free freshen ups. I've mostly dealt with Bill and he's been great to deal with. I've beat the daylights out of my tranny and it's helped me stay at the top of my class at New England Dragway. As a result I recommend the Super Comp to anyone who'll listen. Thanks for the reliability and support.
