Converter getting a cut/clean and going through all the clutch packs and will probably do a little work to them to help handle some more load. Have a sonnax boost valve to increase line pressure as well. Car should be at the track next week!

All the parts for the transmission are on the way. It is looking pretty good for track day on Wed.

I'm still shocked how well this transmission has held up. Remember, this is the one from my old LLT, so it has been to the track a lot.

Im SO pissed I dont have an lfx :((

Wait, I havent been on the forums in a while. This might be a really stupid question. So, If that "adaptolator" works and I get an LFX manifold, then will I be able to do something like what gretch did to his? Or is the ecu completely different still?

I havent looked or have done any research obviously. I do feel like this is a stupid question. However, I want to know because I would be willing to do this to my car in the near future.

You could probably make a jetted manifold extension but the LLT still has tuning and tuning support problems.

The adaptolator would just be to put an LFX manifold on your LLT. The tuning issues will still be there
