I did get some good news today... my new input shaft is at the shop, as is the new output shaft made from 9310 material with the output shaft bearing.... So, the transmission should be good to go after we get those and a few other goodies in it... The DSS stuff should be shipped by the end of this week, or early next week... So, it's coming together...

Glad to hear that you are installing the AMS controller. It is a MUST with a manual transmission. It will take some time to dial in, but you will be a full .5 sec faster or more compared to if you didn't have it. Nice.

between the nitrous and the boost increase, I need something to manage everything...other than shifting gears and steering the car....

This is a boost controller, arguably the best available today for controlling boost through a myriad of settings... It can be set for time, rpm, gear etc... It can be set to increase or decrease the boost in any gear and at any rpm... for example... If you running a crinkle wall slick, you can launch really hard and when the car is going through the shake zone, the boost can be retarded and help prevent wheel hop, then as the tires settle down, the boost comes back on to full pressure... and the nice thing is the available variety of settings... Like Bruce said, it will take some time to dial it in, but once it's there, it only takes minor tweaks for track conditions... I posted up about it in another thread and Ted came on and said it is the best on the market... I tend to agree... It's expensive and requires lots of wiring, but thats ok... if it saves a motor and driveline at the same time it's lowering times tremendously, then I'm all for it...

There is no need for changing springs or manually dialing the boost... you set it, and it does the rest... we are also installing a shift light and we'll short shift 1st gear a little and then progressively get a little higher in each successive gear... first gear spins up so dang fast it's unreal.....

The Nitrous will be used to make up the difference from what we can get on the boost with the current fuel system capacity... With the fuel cell under the hood, and 117 octane race fuel to mix with the nitrous, we should be able to easily get up into the 1300-1400 hp range I'm hoping for... on the ground... I could live with 1200 but... for the mile, I want all I can get...
