Has this tranny swap been a pain or what?

The swap was straightforward, if the Trans would hold and I could get a good converter setup lol.

Some days I wish I stayed m6 for sure

Ok, so today was dyno day again. Ran into a couple issues. Trans cooler fitting is leaking around 4000rpms and up( basically when it builds some good line pressure). Had to re gap plugs because of the spark blowout issues. Went from .035 to .018 per tuners recommendation.

Ended up with 595/677 on 93 with 5 degrees of timing and 731/711 on e85 with 14 degrees. There is more power to be had if we put some more timing in it but the tuner wanted it to live.

The fic 1000s are maxed out also, fuel pressure is rock solid but it's leaning out at the very top of the pull.

what pumps?

I would think the 1000's would be enough. But im not an E85 guy......yet....

Good ole auto leaks.

Fore innovations dual walbro 450s. The only way to get more out of them is to crank the base pressure but then if be straining the pumps pretty hard. I'm going to leave it be and see what it runs this year. I'm loving the new found power though!

made it to the track tonight, best pass was a 10.84@126. 1.68 60'. It spun pretty good and I'm fighting some Trans issues. Best 60' of the night was a 1.61 spinning with a passenger to boot.

I was able to data log the Trans controller and it was up shifting and downshifting from 3rd and 4th the whole back half. Going to make some adjustments and head back soon! Definitely had 10.2s-10.3s in it in some good air

Finally got a driveshaft loop installed. It's bmr part number dsl015. It's for the auto but I used it with the m6 crossmember for the 4l80. It took several hours of modifying it to fit. All of the holes in the crossmembee needed elongated. New holes drilled for the gusset support. And holes drilled for the trans mount itself. It does fit though and I was able to lose the adm 4l80 swap bracket.

Second pic is from last friday.
