Great running TPI car! How are you controlling the 4L60e? What did you have to do to the runners to get them to work with the F.I.R.S.T. intake?

Thanks guys. I am using the TCI transmission controller for the 4L60E. I have the SLP runners hogged out and siamesed. To make the SLP runners fit the First base I first had to cut off the flanges on the SLP runners where they meet the base. I had new flanges made that fit the First intake base. I then had them welded on to the SLP runners. Then lots of welding and grinding. :D
Next goal this Winter is to go up to Famoso in Bakersfield for some good air density. I also have a new long runner intake under construction that will flow more air and along with a few other tweaks I am hoping for a 10.99et. It might take a driver that weighs 100# less than me to do it though. I weigh 260.
There is a good picture of my car among those from the Los Angeles Invasion on this site(Western Division). I will see if I can find it.
Ok, here is a link to a picture of the car. It is page 6 photo 0136. http://bowtie0069.fotki.com/la-invasion/l-a-invasion-2011/
