ATI Performance Products, Inc. introduces
its " 'Glide to Victory" line of bolt in Powerglide
kits for Ford powered vehicles. The kit has been engineered
to bolt to virtually any Ford 5.0 liter, Windsor or Cleveland
small block engine.
The kit comes with an ATI Powerglide transmission with a locking
gauge and fill tube, an ATI torque converter, and an ATI adapter
kit, which includes an ATI flexplate. ATI also has created
four different kits to handle any competition setup-from mild
to wild. Each component has been thoroughly engineered and
The ATI Powerglide transmission is a result of 40 years of
innovation and competition development. These transmissions
are blueprinted and assembled to the specific torque demands
of each engine application. Many transmissions include spur
cut Super Set gears, a torsional input shaft, hard chrome
rings, forged steel clutch hubs, an aluminum deep pan, a high
capacity band and clutches, and the ATI "instant-releasing"
external solenoid brake. An extensive list of options may
also be added at the time of purchase.
Each ATI torque converter is COMPLETELY NEW-NO USED PARTS!
This means that you get a true competition part and not a
junkyard core that has been modified. Every component is computer-designed
and manufactured utilizing state-of-the-art CNC turning and
Each ATI converter contains unique competition features like
the "C" series roller clutch or element-style sprag,
anti-ballooning plates, a centerless -more-ground hub, inner
blade support, Torrington bearings, and furnace brazing.
The ATI adapter kit allows the customer to mate a Powerglide
transmission to a non-GM motor with a minimum of modifications.
The kit comes with an adapter plate, crank adapter, flexplate,
and all the needed hardware to conduct a smooth installation.
The adapter plate is made from ½ inch 6061 T-6 heat-treated
aluminum. The plate measures 20 inches high and 24 inches
wide and may be incorporated into an engine mid-plate. The
plate is not profiled in order to meet the unique clearance
requirements of each vehicle.
The ATI crank adapter is fabricated from heat-treated steel
and bolts to the crank to ensure exact converter and flexplate
location. This adapter also accepts the OEM diameter and length
GM converter pilot. Each crank adapter is designed utilizing
OEM drawings and dimensions and produced on ATI's state-of-the-art
CNC turning centers.
The ATI Flexplate is created from custom drawn SFI-spec chromoloy
steel. This unit is double MIG/TIG welded for additional strength
and lasting precision pass after pass. Each ATI flexplate
is manufactured and toleranced from actual OEM drawings to
ensure a precise fit and location. Each plate is quality inspected
to EXCEED the flatness and run-out tolerances of the OEM units
and is precision balanced on Hines digital equipment with
a resolution of 1/10 ounce/inch.
ATI's "'Glide to Victory" line of Powerglide kits
