Ok looking good, where did u put vacuum on?

Do u use the kickdownswitch in the TH400 or is it made manual?

I have a blower and burned 3 clutches/sets till now so thinking about this route.

The vacuum line goes to where the other boost references are hooked. The th400 has a connection that kicked it down when 12volts are applied to it.

Got the converter back, just haven't had a chance to go back to the track. We have a lot of cars at our shop for cam jobs so that's priority

Have you put one on the dyno before and after to see what the HP loss is?

Nick can you either PM me or post little more information on the electronic connections, speedo, trans temp, traction control, reverse light and what ever else needs to be turned off or on in the tune. Thanks

To sum it up, all I did was tape up all the plugs on the harness that went to the m6 trans and I tucked the harness up behind the ABS box by the firewall. No cels, speedo works fine!
I bumped this Thread back up for Bad Dad to read. He has all the lights on his dash lit up, since his TH400 conversion. Hopefully this might help him.

Thanks, the only code that might pop up is the speed sensor input. If you clear it the speedo wont work for a few secs. Some cars wont have any issues like this last th400 we just did. I think i know how to fix this issue but its not a big deal to me and as soon as i get a chance ill see if my solution works.

Was Bad Dad's a M6?

Ive been beating on my th400 for a while now with no issues. Its currently set at 740rwhp/900+rwtq

TH400, Hum maybe I should pull my M6 and install my good old clutch TH400 that's been sitting in the corner out of my old 69 camaro drag car, it should be even faster than a standard TH400 because I can leave at whatever rpm the track will hookup at because I keep my clutch and pressure plate, hum has me thinking
