2.93's are good with the stall, you can really feel the pull in first, its a Corvette 2,200 stall I believe, perfect like the tranny builder said. He said if you dont have a lot of power, like my car(stockish) then a lower stall works better, if you have ALOT of power then a higher stall works better.
I have a 2.93 rear axle ratio, I have bought a 3.73 Motive gears and im looking for an eaton posi, im just curious to see what I get on the highway once I get my CAI.
That Jeep beat me badly around the corner, I dont know if he had AWD or what, but I went as fast as I could with out losing traction the rear wheels and he was moving around that corner like he was on rails, after I straigtened out I put the hammer down hard and started pulling real good infront of him, all while he was flooring it. Straight 6, v6 it wasnt that peppy.
New mods to come, cold air intake, LT4 knock module, as soon as I get those gears in im going to have to get the PCM flashed, I was thinking about getting FBODY EGR, roller rockers and springs too, so many choices...
Im so glad the exhaust and tranny are done, total was around $1,600.00 for the both. With this tranny I can really lay on it good, Raybestos Clutches/Kevlar band/Beast Sunshell/.500 boost valve/sleeve, Shift kit, Corvette Servo, Corvette stall, all the shifts are very firm, I dont worry at all about damaging it with some occasional play.
Mixed city/highway, 28 miles each way im getting around 15 mpg, I just aired my tires up they were all 7 pounds low, so that should help a little, if I could lay off the gas, and not have the torque connverted unlock every 15 seconds it would be even better, lol.
Thanks guys it was alot of fun. Definately want to get more mods now.
My vinyl top is coming off, I was going a little to fast on the interstate, so the whole front end is blown about 5 inches back, it looks like its gonna have to come off.
