SHES FINISHED!! SWAP COMPLETE!! Come to find out I was fighting fluild low levels. So it wasnt shifting properly and sometimes wouldnt even move. Kept checkig stick and it showed good but decieded to add fluid and wow its alive ha (feel like a dumb ass) I guess it was picking up oil on the stick from the tube. Went and test drove it all last night and drove it to work this morining and wow it shifts so smooth and is pretty quick haha

Big Thumbs up to Lethal Racing
Well as most of you know I have been doing a M6 to 4l80e swap on my car. Been doing it all myself with friends in shop. Sunday night was the first test run with it. An it didn't go so well. While I was testing it out ha ha the car completely shut off and then smoke poured out the hood! Had to get it towed back home . After a bunch of searching found that the BAP burnt up and a fitting on the trans is broke.
I started turnaround so I have no time to work on it now. The guys from LETHAL Racing drove from laffayette to my house past Baton Rouge to come pick up my car and bring it back to there shop to fix all my problems and go through the car and make sure my work is correct! Huge props to those guys! Got to get it right for Camaro FEST!

Now that's downright nasty looking and deserving of COTW honors. Tell me? To fit that monster rear rubber, did it require a wide body kit or some kind of body mods? Again. Killer Camaro!
