supply and demand. If you're the only dude with one for sale and 30 people want one, you get to name your price when there are no other options. This sounds like a great reason to not build a FWD 3800 car

thats why no one builds really fast ones any more, you could just buy a new camaro for the price of a built trans

and i refuse to put a 4t6fail in my caged car ill struggle with the 4t80 instead for less than the cost of the chain alone.

i get it gmr parts are expensive but this shits out of control i should have fucking bought a chain and torsen from greg pritt when i had the chance. i still regret it.

x28687586838757599 on the 6th gen :rofl: 5100 dollars in parts makes at least a few months of BRAND new payments lolololololol!!!!

more reason for me to fucking hate the 4t6fail and the price gouging.

:dunno: :picard:

How about we just don't worry about the transmissions since nobody actually makes it to the track anyway?

$5100 you could turn that engine 90 degrees, buy a rear end and trans and make it actually hook.

I talked to wally a lot during the two days we were there hunched over OEM cutty prints.

if kevin can get 10k for his trans parts that's most of what youd need to do a fox rearend/tunnel/chassis good to the 8's.

the frontend wouldn't need any modifications as a removable K member can be made and keep all the OEm unibody except the rear seat/trunk pan.

it'd be half as much as what we're spending :rofl:

the problem is trying to SELL the trans/turbo stuff and having to fab all rwd stuff.

as it is now this is a buick heritage/tribute car for posterity.

the most he could do to improve the car is toss everything onto that minty 17k black/black GSX. and that's merely a subframe and suspension swap.

I have a twin engine fish to fry soon....
