TH400 swap/cam only... track results!

11.75@117.1



I just got my baby all fixed up finally!!! After 2 weeks of issues I have it all sorted out, stupid poly trans mount... dont use them!

I beat the piss out of it for an Hr to make sure its all good, went over everything and the DRs are mounted. Me and Little88 are hitting Byron tomorrow morn, high 57 and sunny so weather should be good.

The car feels AMAZING with the th400, the 3600 stall drives very nice on the street! Way better then I thought it would, props to FTI! I totally expect to have a new PB tomorrow!

I think I am the first to do a th400 swap on a cam only car, so we will see what the results are! I made 440 with the M6, ran 12.4-12.3s 115-116 before the swap.

Heading out soon! No the converter does not lock on the highway. I can cruise about 65 and 2600rpms with the 3.45 gear. My speedo works, trans temp is not hooked up, I have a check engine light on right now. My traction control is still active too! I did all the labor and already had the trans, end up around 1600$ total.

Good luck! Can't wait to see how it goes.

You wouldn't happen to have the Part number for the TCI flexplate your running would you? I accidently bought the wrong one (non-sfi rated) when I was at Summit and I can't for the life of me find the part number I need.

11.77@116.4!!!!

Stupid trans is short shifting itself into second early because I don't have the 12 volts running to the trans I guess. But man she's running awesome, I am able to hold 2nd as long as I want, shifting it at 6800. Need to get 1-2 worked out, might have 11.6!

Just trapped 117.7 on a 11.80 pass! 60ft was slower, I shifted 3rd at 7k! Once I fix 1-2 it's gonna pick up for sure!

Lol this is a option I might concider. I would actually like to do a 416-427 stroker down the road too.

Right now I am thinking intake work and a rear drag bar. Get my 1-2 shift sorted out and who knows, might see 11.5s!! I just drove 1.5hr home, 2600rmps doing like 65 and used a 1/4 tank. Not bad at all for a little street car, I am happy!

Its not cheap but later on down the road if you are wanting an Overdrive there is always the Gear Vendors.

Thats good stuff though, especially seeing your cam is a pretty mild cam. Im pretty jelly your still racing this far into November too. Even though even if the tracks were open here my broken POS is sitting in the garage .

You planning on staying NA?

Badass! !!!
Wonder what drive train loss there is going from M6 to a TH400? Question: why a TH400 vs a 4L80E?

No power loose since I went 117.7mph! Best with the m6 was 116.3, the th400 might show less on the dyno but who cares! Th400 I already had, the 4l80 is a more complicated swap and allot more money.

I would like to stay NA, I want to see just how fast I can go with this combo. I still can do a under drive pulley, manifold work, and suspension. Just fixing my 1-2 shift is gonna help too, even some front runners.

My goal is to have a 427 stroker, run 10s NA. But who knows blowers and nitrous sound tempting some times.
