Separate names with a comma.
Probably not in the transmission. Flexplate, crankshaft, dowel alignment, etc.
Getting a converter that's noticeably out of balance is rare, because they are essentially a fluid damper.
Getting two different ones from two...
Not critical, it has more of an effect on the manual 1-2 shift.
A flywheel is supposed to be ground slightly convex.
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.
