    Well here we go. Today I managed to blast a bunch of teeth off the input drive gear melting drag radials at 100. I'm tired of grinding gears, I'm gonna rebuild/flog the T10 and upgrade to a 4l80E over the winter. I'm going a completely different engine/trans management system over the winter which I've got lined up with a wicked sponsor! Stay tuned for the details and some 10 second slips :)

    Very nice! Sorry to see/hear about the gear issues. What power level is it at now? I'm curious because I was thinking of turbo ing my car but I am probably not doing it now because I found another project I have to have. LMAO!

    Well I've got some great news and am excited to introduce my new sponsor, Holley! I'm going with a dominator system which is extremely complete. It will run my engine, trans, boost control and water meth, as well as all of my canbus gauges! I will be posting lots about how the system all works together. It's the most complete package on the market and I'm excited to get started. As many of you also know Hurst Shifters is owned by Holley so I'm going to be running this beautiful quarter stick! Here are a few pics:

    Built this new gauge panel from aluminum! Pretty tough to get right because it's not symmetrical nor are the bends!

    Heres the heater block of plate and mount I made for the dominator! I've entirely deleted the heater system as I've never used it.

    I have been reading that the Holley EFI control systems , like the one you show, are the best, have you had time yet to dig into it, compared it to the system you were using?
