Russ:
Do you have a transmission cooler? I am concerned about my transmission temps and I think I should have one installed in my car.

Sorry Emma...missed your post. I'd absolutely recommend a transmission cooler with a torque converter. Definitely a requirement in IMO.

Not at all. I had two flats in two days though (that sucked). The first day it was just a leaking valve stem. The next day it was a 2" nail. I did have to travel across town to a Discount Tire with a special machine that never touches the wheel lip.

I was getting a little shimmy on the highway so I had them rebalanced. One of the rears was off...now we're all good.

Also had a great time hanging with Kyle. Here are some new pics.
I notice something different on your car everytime I check it out Russ, its still lookin sweet. Kyles car has a nice stance to it as well, hoping the next Fest is out that way so I can meet and hang with you guys sometime. Thanx for the sig brotha, I get a lot of compliments on it and I like it almost as much as your car.

No problem. These signatures are fun, and they help me learn more in Photoshop.

How about the next Fest in Dallas?

Next on the list are the LSX (probably 427) and 4L80 transmission, but not necessarily in that order.

My plan is to have everything ready by the Camaro Nationals.

I don't think that was the point. I can't drop a new motor and tranny in my car.

Well... I wasn't going to consider that seriously until my current rwhp stops scaring the crap out of me...

OMG, I'd just make sure I got the insurance and claim I came back out and it was like that.

I've been so busy I haven't had a chance to get on the forum much. I'll have to try and catch up this weekend.

My 4L80 core and Circle D Pro Stage III multi-disk torque converter (say that 5 times fast) are here, and the rest is on the way. Shooting for installation in the next couple of weeks.

I'm also going to go ahead and order all the forged parts for the LSX so Owen can get started on that.

It's going to be a fun summer!
