Great looking ride you have there mlee! I will have to pull up the videos when I get home so I can hear them better. The in monitor speakers here at the office don't do very well. Keep it up. Can't wait to see it in person at one of the meets.

Loved it... the WOT exhaust clips I have with my HD Flip camera clips the mic. That was the best sound I've heard so if anyone wants to know what Corsa sounds like with ARH LTs... there it is..

Thanks again

I talked to IPS Brandon about installing a cam in mine and he said if I go with a new cam that I really should get a torque converter as well. To be honest, I don't know much of anything about torque converters. Why did you decide to go with one? (Yes, I'm that "naive." I prefer to think of myself as "naive" as opposed to "dumb.")

Main reason is I'm going to be swapping out cams... and I wanted to drive w/ the torque converter first. For big cams a TQ Conv is needed so they can raise the idle and you won't have to stand on the brake at stop lights to keep it from moving forward.

Another reason it's the #1 best bang for your buck for the Autos. I now start off right in the Torque band instead of building up to it. Makes for some tricky launches since I can't just romp on it now or the tires will just roast. Take a look at your Dyno run and see where your peak torque is... then pick a stall around 5 hundred RPMs below the peak. Your tuner can help select the right one.

You won't need quite as big a stall w/ the maggie but it will certainly make a huge difference... Drag Radials are next on my list now. I plan to put them my stock wheels so I can just run with them around town if needed.
