So the start of this build had some snags and is moving a bit slow. This gave me a lot of time to about additional upgrades. I've been thinking about the strength of the stock torque converter. I'm thinking it would be easier to get a stronger billet and stall converter put in before stuffing two turbos around the tranny. I know I would get gains with a stall converter.
So would the stock TC fail from the extra power?
Is the TC even the weak link in the 6L50 and I have worse things to worry about?

I've put my 6L50 through a beating and it's still ticking. We are working on getting a multi-disk converter created. It will take a while, but I think that's the route to go. Not being able to lock up the single disk is going to kill the top end for us. We really need to be able to lock in 4th gear if we can.

I still think the weakest links are the hyper-crap pistons and the differential on the autos. The axles we got are toothpicks. Yes, the autos are easier on the drivetrain than a manual, but still those axles scared me when I compared them to what's on the SS.

That probably doesn't help much, does it? I guess I would suggest waitning on the torque converter until we have some more options. In the mean time, try to pick up a used differential, axles, hubs and driveshaft from a M6 SS. You can usually pick them up for less than $1K and get it installed for about $200 (or do it yourself).

There is plenty of help in there. I saw that you mentioned of a mulit disk before. Maybe I should hold out until then. I just hate the idea of tuning and adding something then re-tuing.
I know that the diffs are weak. I would love to swap mine out at some point. As for the pistons, I didn't really want to go into the engine.

Go conservative with the boost and the tune and the pistons will probably be fine. Nice thing is with the LFX they can watch the data log in real-time as they tune it on the dyno. That should allow them to bail out if they see it going bad after a tweak.

HAHA. Good enough for me!

I didn't have any plan to go crazy on the boost. We figured it would be easy to drop a ZL1 tank pump in if the fuel delivery dies out before we wanted it to. Not sure how much gain it will really give until the HPFP gives up.

Nothing yet Rick! It's almost been a month now since I dropped my car off. I honestly think the shop bit off a little more than they could chew when it comes to projects there . I know they are working pretty hard to get Terri's car (darth_emma) put together.

Everytime you're the first to test something, it takes awhile. Just look at how rx took five months with yellow glides car

Well they just recently chopped a hole in the hood to fit her insane intake elbow. I don't think there is much else she could do to it now.

Will you be the first for the IPS tt system? Is their one available for the LLT?

IPS did build one LLT TT in the past. If everyone remembers Orange5thGen's car. But last I spoke with him he sold the coupe and bought a LLT Vert. And he was swapping over the kit to that car.

They made one other llt twin turbo car that i know of. They had a lot of pains with the tuning. They were doing remote dyno tuning with trifecta. The results were up and down.
