Muscle Car Review - - Tech -

n The en­gine bay looks close to stock, but David Goodwin made sub­tle changes to make his Javelin more streetable, while shy­ing away from tech that could be dif­fi­cult to trou­bleshoot and re­pair. This V-8 is a re­place­ment for the long-gone orig­i­nal 390. It is built with just a lit­tle added oomph. Goodwin up­graded the trans­mis­sion to a Ford T-5 us­ing Jeep parts. Yeah, Jeep parts! “You can mod­ify the in­put shaft col­lar with a Jeep part, use a Jeep bell­hous­ing, and in­stall it while still re­tain­ing your stock clutch link­age.”
