Yes, it had mid 10s in it, but only ever made one pass (that 11.2) and had problems. Second pass the rear broke.

Put the fascia back on today, and the wheel wells. Installed trans dowels and started cutting on the frame rail for the trans plug. No pushrods showed up today :( hopefully monday will get to crank it

Pre frame rail cutting pics to show the fit. Tight in there.






Couple good shots of how the ADM Performance adapter plate works with the factory crossmember and a standard T400 trans mount

Oh lovely, a DOUBLE frame. (This is the trans tunnel frame, not the car's frame rail. There are actually two seperate rails on the car, pretty neat)



Finally done. Ugly as ****... good as it's going to get on my back in the garage. Can make it pretty later. Onto the other side, the easy side.

I looked and looked and looked it it just seemed like I could get enough room on the pass side not to even touch the rail. I was successful.

Step 1: Trim the corner of the trans pan around the actual transmission (this pan overhangs for no reason.. yours may or may not)




Step 2: Picture is self explanatory


Finished product, no more tunnel contact. There is ~1/8" of clearance at the pan rail to frame now, should be completely sufficient.

Super elated it fired right up, especially with the manual ---> auto swap, E85 conversion, 1000cc injectors, and completely new engine/intake.

Now to tie up loose ends and get it on the road and let her eat!

Duh done done! Just waiting on transmission computer. All hard parts are finished, fluids full, and installed. Good to go! The end of a long road.

Trans dipstick in place

Converter clearance, perfect 1/8"

Where you sneak the verter bolts in the flexplate, by the starter


Trans lines + dipstick tube installed

Alternate view

Shift linkage fit like a glove, zero modification for 4l80, just bolted right up.



Thanks Frank @ Driveshaft Shop for this nice piece

My lovely wife doing work finishing the diff side

Trans side finished


Got the exhaust on, ready for a drive! Come on trans computer hurry up and get here!
