Installed ASP pulley, thermostat, tri-ax shifter and Volant intake (super sealed).

Finished off the last of my pile of mods today. The pulley and thermostat were no big deal, you've installed one, you've installed them all. but the shifter, OMG! This thing was a HUGE pain in the ass. I refused to drop my newly installed exhaust to install this thing and it kicked my ass, but at the end I am glad I did it. The shifter feels AWESOME! The shifts are so short at first I thought something was wrong with my transmission because it wouldn't go into gear, but it was already in gear! I was expecting the shifts to be shorter but this is just amazing.

Now, the Volant intake was stupid cheap but it didn't seal as good as i had hoped. So I went a little overboard with some metallic duct tape. I managed to completely seal off every single sliver of space that engine heat could get in the air box. It looks like there is a little room where I could squeeze some ducting for a small ram air tube. I'll play with that later. The intake seems to have made my exhaust a little louder, which is just sprinkles on top! Also, I had to remove this little bolt that was in the way. I have no clue what it is for but it got in the way of my intake.

Here are some pics.

How did you access the inside of the Volant.....through the wheel well? If it was through the wheel well, did you have to remove the wheel and entire well, or were you just able to partially lower it for access?

Yes, through the wheel well. I guess you could just undo the front, but taking it completely out is so easy. You do have to remove the wheel.

I did all my mods at once, but I have installed a ton of pulleys on cars and they are ALWAYS worth it (unlike the VMAX ported TB).

SUX2BU, what ratio did you go with on the under drive pulley and why?

Thanks, Nathan

I did a 25% under drive, because its the only ratio available. Unless there is a new one I don't know about.

I saw a 10% under-drive at SEMA. Have you found any challenges with the 25%?

I don't care to much about lessening to the radio. I'm never going to put any kind of audio, so that wouldn't be a concern for me.

Thanks for the input.

Nope, in fact if there was a higher reduction I would try that.
