Very clean work. I like. Cleanliness is godliness with internals work! Good job and damn good documentation. I respect anyone who gives it a go with their own car!

Thanks man, I tried to be as organized as possible. The cleaning was the least fun and most time consuming but as you said, very important.

Yes, I got the car tuned yesterday.

432 rwhp 390 torque

I like the power from 5K to 6.5K rpms. I am not concerned about peak power honestly but I guess I lost some torque due to the stall converter.

I drove the car to work and back today which is 55 miles round trip and it ran really good. No leaks, no issues of any kind so far thankfully. I cant believe how loud it is. I love the shake and lope. People stare at the car as if it's about to explode.

I have absolutely no traction in these temps with stock tires. I can't wait to get on it when it gets warm. The 3600 stall is almost too big to for longer distances like today but for a weekend car it's perfect. i don't plan to drive my car to work very often. Also, I have an ADM trans cooler but the trans temps never went below 180 which is smack in the middle, not sure if this is typical with this stall or not.

Very nice. I have the 3600 in my car too, it definitely takes some getting used to. How do you like your trans tune?

I like the tune. Brandon basically tuned it the way I wanted it. It's my first car with big stall converter so I didn't know what to expect. I am getting used to it. Brandon seems to know this trans which not many tuners do. Do you drive yours a lot? What exhaust do you have?

I daily drive it until first snow. I have the ARH from headers to tailpipe, and I LOVE it.

That sounds amazing, I can't wait to do my cam.

Sometime next summer, I would love to come out and see your car. I am in Gurnee, and I have a friend who lives in Mchenry, right by Mchenry Harley Davidson.

Wow...great build and congratulations on an awesome job. I was gonna ask you about the drivability, but I see you installed a 3600 stall converter.

To the OP:

are you a certified mechanic? Or did you do this with just using the proper tools, literature and torque wrenches?

Thanks, it drives really well with the 3600, can not feel the gear shifts but you can hear the engine when it shifts.

No I am not a profesional mechanic tech, sometimes I wish I was. I'm an electronics engineer but always looking to learn new stuff. I did read tons of literature and torque wrenches are a must especially for head work.

Very nice work...

I had a 3200 stall with the same trans cooler as you and the temps were around 180 but it didn't take much to drive them up to 200. What speed are you locking your converter at. If on the Highway you should be fine commuting to work.
