so mini update:

pictures of the new build are coming soon. And since most of you already know. DETROIT MUSCLE is getting an ARD 4L80E Full Manual Valve Body Transmission. Sorry to the LS3 guys.... but I am ready for some REAL quick 1/4 times and the ARD tranny is the way to go. I will miss my clutch pedal... but this should be real FUN

a little delay right now with getting the transmission in, I will not get my car till next friday (since I will be in NYC), which means I will be missing the bikini car shoot, but thats ok. I have a few guys willing to man up for it anyway.

In my downtime.. I had this idea... hmmm, the car could be delayed... that means they will have it for another week... what to do what to do....

well I figured it out... Since ARD will have my car for an extra week... and they only have a little bit of work that needs to actually be completed on the trans... and I do not want them to get bored....


da ta da da






















Striker ColdShot Water/Methanol Injection System

yes... it is finally happening... DET-MSL is gonna get hooked on Meth.
I had to do something to make up for all the HP I will lose going through that Auto Trans



and FYI--- pass the word... I have a complete "Manual Transmission Conversion Kit" for sale with a Stage 5 Monster Single Disk clutch... with a BRAND new disk and pressure plate!!
spread the word! need to PAY Owen... he declined my Airline Miles

I have a number in my head... Going to break it down by pieces first, then work up a price as a full kit. Will have to confirm that with Owen.

I'll post probably tomorrow. PQ you got first dibs before I make a sale thread for it ;-)

Thanks a lot. It's a hell of club we found ourselves in isn't it.

I find it hard to stop inching my way to that 1000 crank hp mark ;-)
And as a daily driver. Unbelievable

Kyle, you know this means you will have to plan a trip down in Oct - Nov, so we can both try to go 200 in the standing mile...That would be awesome and double the chances...

PQ, WTF... You win the challenge and then think about going MANual...

Kyle, you ought to be able to easily get to 1000 at the crank... I'm three degrees away from that now... You realize you push, your making me have to do the same...

I can see 18 lbs of boost in the near future... Try to reach that 1000 RWHP.....
