I hope you over built that transmission. Ptc builds a great TC but I had quite a bit of issues in the past running their th400 untill I just it to my local guy and he found quite a few issue and got me squared away. Also if your not running 36 element sprag and drum and some billet shafts it won't last very long with a heavy car.

Stan, any plans to build a crazy fast 5th gen?
Stop by our shop sometime, we moved since last time we spoke.

Thanks
Chris

I have already been reading some stuff on the elbow. I guess we will see. This one isnt the super low profile one but if we run into this problem im sure we can fix it. If not, COPO hood and Holley high ram time.

Chris Derrick years ago had a wierd looking elbow that Mike Duffy from OKC built. It looked like a big 12 round air cleaner with a 5 in throttle body stuck in the side of it. It slowed the airflow down and made it come in from all directions. I thought it was goofy back then but now can see its advantages.

Another friend/customer of mine Dewayne Mills had a billet elbow made by someone, can't remember who, that had deflectors made into it to redirect the airflow. I don't think it really worked out that great. He still had to trim the cylinders differently.
