I also figure with this swap gives me lots of room to grow in the power department down the road. The only down side I see is not being to drive 80-90 mph for extended periods of time, but I don't really do that anyway.
Bad- this is a great idea, you and I went through similar issues with our combinations. I think the change over to the automatic will instantly drop 4-6 tenths off of your times with repeatable performance. I can't wait to follow along with your build should you decide to move forward.

I wouldn't do it. In my 98 SS I went from M6 to A3 and then back to M6. The auto was a little more consistent but boring as hell to race and drive. Also gas mileage was cut in half and highway driving was annoying.

What kind of wheels/tires are you teaching on? Your times are about the same as mine, but I'm a lot heavier (probably 300 lbs) and only have bolt ons so I have a lot less power.

What 60 fts are you getting?

I figured I get this thread going again! My M6 trashed the throw out bearing, after 3 frustrating years at the track with this thing I am finally DONE! The trans has been sold and my th400 is about to go in!

I ordered the chevy to BOP adapter plate, and it looks like it will work out pretty nice. Going to mach up the trans sunday to get the driveshaft ordered and place my order for a converter from FTI! They are building me a LS style converter with the right hub and 3600 stall! I have a B&M gate shifter going in, and using the stick shift boot for a clean look.

I think the car is not only going to run at lest 3 tenths faster, its going to be WAY more fun running good 60fts and I still get to shift the th400!

I think you'll drop more than 3 tenths Mike, does this trans have a 'brake or will you be using the foot brake to bring it up?

I've done the A3 swap twice in the recent past.

Andy at ADM swapped my M6 to a 6L80, put a Yank 3200 stall in it, changed the steering wheel & console, it looks factory. Car ran a 10.56 with the M6, its much quicker now, hoping to get it to the track this week before I sell it.

Would be nice if it goes faster then .3! Just going off the foot brake, easier in parts. Now that this trans is going I am hoping get into the 11.5s with a little more engine work. I don't see why it wouldn't, some head work and a ported intake is kinda next on the list. But we will see what she does now and were I am at. I would super happy if it went 11.9 like this, but I am trying not to think about it.
