Separate names with a comma.
It's not the oil anyway. It's junk parts.
Gears and a converter will make the biggest seat of the pants difference. Adding 100 HP doesn't equate in seat of the pants or even ET usually.
Gear swap will reduce the stress on the transmission.
Ya. I co-pilot Dennis Taylor's car and help with Alex's.
It was a structural floorpan brace that he cut out to make enough clearance for the GV.
I recommended against cutting that out and mentioned that...
Maybe I should pull up the myriad of emails from ULTM8Z where I gave him advice for free and he chose to do other things. EVERYTHING that I warned...
The complete lack of knowledge and dumbassedry on forums is why they are mostly dead.
Try again at about 17-18 mpg.
We were driving around in a 3000 HP car without an overdrive or lockup during Drag Week at about 10 mpg on E85.
How about 1800 HP? Cruising down the highway with the A/C on, power steering, stereo. Then runnin 8.30's at 160+ mph?
750 HP is child's play.
You're not taking into account that the Musclecar Kit comes with a converter ($950 retail) a controller ($685 retail), a TPS kit for the...
MAF can definitely kill a trans. Trans pressure is calculated from engine load, that comes from the MAF among other things.
$15k is a reasonable estimate.
Assume $2000-3000 in materials. That's a low estimate.
That leaves $12-13k for labor.
Ya, that's a job I wouldn't even take the risk of at the shop unless I painted it.
More real world results. Lol
I wouldn't cut that brace out on a frame car, much less a unibody. They already twist and give a ton as it is.
That's the problem. They don't tell you the caveats.
They simply don't fit most cars without cutting the floor and give proper driveline angles....
The driveline angles are one reason I don't care for the Gear Vendors. Very few cars have the room for it there.
Stacked plate are more efficient but slightly more restrictive.
Long makes the good ones for B&M and Tru-Cool.
And if you want to see some interesting data, go see what transmission shops are getting out of radiators with a "Hot Flush" machine that pulses...
