As some of you know I hydrolocked a cylinder with fuel about a month or 2 back and snapped a rod. This was with my custom 76mm turbo kit through my T56. Since then I've fixed the motor and gone a different direction with the power adder. I took the turbo off and went back to a SC. I also upgraded my tranny a bit.







Sorry for the dirty and dusting car. Hoping to maybe have everything done by this weekend.

nice, but need more pics.

2.3 or 3.4? what trans?
That big sucker is a 3.4 Whipple. The trans is a built 4R70W with a transbrake, 3,000 stall, manual valve body. I'll try to get more pics.
Thanks.

I had a feeling you were gonna want to run. I'm down. When is this beast of yours done? I'll be waiting.

I picked it up used from someone from another forum. I think I paid $1,300 for everything. You can normally find the 4R70W's built with some extra goodies for $1,000.00-$1,500.00 used. I don't know what power level you plan on running but I see some people taking stock 4R70W's and putting a manual valvebody in it and having it hold 600hp with no problem. It's fairly cheap to do as well. You figure most of the used T56's are about the same price any way so why not do the automatic. You could go to a junk yard and pick up a nice used 4R70W for a few hundred bucks. Just make sure it's one of the latest versions though. They revised some of the parts in the latest ones to make them stronger I guess. I don't know the years off the top of my head.
Just my 2 cents, but if I were you I would go auto. Your build is very interesting. You should post build pics. I wonder are you going to swap interiors too?

not yet, was thinking about the interior, as of right now it will just be the cluter and column.
THanks for the information, look into it!
