It is a hike but there is a BW3's in Schererville too if anyone wanted to go there after.

I drove a 4000 stall in my car, it was looooose with stock 3.27 gears.

I think what I will do is tweak the tune over the weekend and then find a few opportunities to test shift points on the street. Then hit track Wed or Thur.

I mean, all you really need right off the bat is to get that 1-2 nailed. So its not like you need to do 100mph or anything.lol

Let ne know what day you pick. Ill try to get there.


*EDIT* - so i was thinking of getting trailing arms and probably a bushing kit to start my suspension upgrade. PSJ, what did you say you had on back there?

sent from my galaxy s3. that would explain the errors.

Well I can definitely mention your name to some of the magazines I know and you ran a nice ET Jeremy. Your best bet also is to hit the big events like Camaro5, LS Fest and the LSX Series as all the big magazines are there.

How far are you from NLR? I was told there is a big difference from 3600 to 3800, not sure how it could be a big deal only 200 rpm. Everyone I've asked says 4000 is realy loose but the 3.70 gear may help a little.
