These KEP adapters are designed to use the 240mm Turbo 5000 clutch parts (if manual shift).

Manual kit includes the adapter plate made of aluminum plate, a custom made steel flywheel, pilot bearing and all the necessary bolts to fit the engine to the transaxle. High performance clutches also available.

Automatic kit includes the same adapter plate, a custom made flexplate, and all the necessary bolts to fit the engine to the transaxle. We do not provide the torque converter bolts. Customer must specify 3 or 4 bolt pattern on the torque converter.


Chevy LS1-LS9 to Porsche 996-911 from '99-05 & Boxster S & Cayman S & 997


This kit uses a gear reduction LS starter and uses the 996 clutch. We also have high performance clutches for this with wider contact surface than the stock clutch.

A Ford disc must be used. The T-5 transmission that is normally slanted 18° must now be mounted vertical. Kit includes adapter plate, bolts, pilot bearing and instructions.

Toronado TH-425 Transaxle (also fits TH-325 andTurbo 350/450 Trans)


The Toronado transaxle is very strong, very heavy and the only readily available automatic transaxle meant to handle the torque of a performance V8.


REF# 9300 Chevy V6 or V8 to Toronado or Turbo 350/400 and 700R4. Unlike our competitors, our properly designed kit uses a 7/16 " ground steel adapter plate and crankshaft extender to locate the torque converter. Bolts, converter spacers, and instructions are included. Oil pan must be modified for use on Toronado.


REF# 9100 Aluminum V8 to Toronado or Turbo 350/400 and 700R4 and Powerglide. The '61-'63 Buick-Olds 215 V8 did not come with a good transmission. Using our adapter, you can fit a reliable Turbo trans to the engine. It also fits Powerglide if you specify when ordering. If for a Turbo 400, the 350 converter must be used. Comes with a modified flexplate. A Buick flexplate core is required.
