Abbot makes an awesome adaptor to bolt the AR5 to a LS v8 with a 60e bellhousing for a budget and he built this turbo v8 LS colorado to push the trans and development farther on it.

brought it to my dyno for some testing! 882whp 784ftlbs on pump ethanol!

That’s insane. I was under the impression that trans was weak junk
I wonder if he's ever really pushed it or launched it. I can't imagine a trans with design limitations stated at 260 ft lbs, is going to last very long with 3 times that power to the wheels. I'm just assuming he never really has that much traction :rofl:
