Ultra bell MSD LS Ignition control demo derby edelbrock intake manifold
Stock bellhousings can't withstand the punishment of today's top derby's.  You don't want a broken transmission bellhousing to keep you from winning the feature.  Using the latest technology, J.W. Performance has developed the Ultra Bell bellhousings. They are designed to be certified flexplate shields and allow for special motor and transmission combinations to be easily mated together. J.W. Performance Ultra Bell bellhousings are manufactured from one-piece cast aluminum, making them 600 times stronger than stock bellhousings. They are capable of taking a beating and still deliver power to the rear end.  Ultra Bell's are designed to fit under most stock floorboards, and are made in the USA.

Stock bellhousing must be cut off of transmission. This bolts directly to front pump. Bolts included. Will work with OEM 12 in. torque converters and smaller.

GM TH400 Automatic to GM Small Block GenIII/IV LS Series

If you don't see the transmission/engine combo you want (like small block Ford to Powerglide or small block Ford to TH400) then just give us a call.  We can get most Ultra Bell's that JW Performance makes.
Don't let the wiring scare you!  This controller from MSD makes it easy.  It comes with 6 different timing programs that you plug into the controller.  Simple!  Our LS tech can help you decide which timing curve will work best for you.

The controllers also feature a 2-step rev limiter, a vacuum advance curve, and even a step retard.

For use on carbureted LS1/LS6 engines with 24 tooth crank trigger.

Designed for the 2 bbl derby car, providing outstanding performance from 3500 to 7000 RPM. The runners are sized especially for the 2 bbl racing engines for the ultimate combination of torque/horsepower and fuel distribution.

An extra tall carburetor pad eliminates the need for spacers, and rear water outlets allow for a 4-corner coolant flowpath if desired (for use with our small block Chevy cooling unit) Other features include dual distributor clamp locations and port exits sized to match Chevy cast-iron Bowtie cylinder heads.
