thanks....something isnt right though. Turbos just wouldnt mph. I think it is something in the new tranny or the converter. I know the car and it just was down on power.....no smoke or detonation though. Same as last Sunday. It either has boost leaking from one side or the tranny/converter is slipping. It may be time for a 400/4l80e..... :bang: Dave at RockOn mentioned doing a 4l80e the other day since we pretty much found the limit of a 4l60e he can sell to be 700rwhp. After that it gets spotty which is ok for testing but not for his customers so this is the data he needed. Precision....is gonna hear about this converter.....it gets extremely hot when not locked up and has a vibration. Maybe they will work with me on a 400/4l80e converter. I put the tranny in 3rd last night and locked up, it runs 3000 rpms at 70....I could live with that if we dont go to a 4l80e...just have to talk to Dave and see.

Congratulations! That is awesome. Speaking of trannys, I know alot of people like to go with the TH400 but have you thought about going with a TH350? The reason I say that is my friend Drew (NOSFEDGTA) swears up and down by the TH350s in his car and he runs mid to low 9s! I know that 400 will soak up some power so I just thought I would bring this up. Just a thought :)

Congrats Jerry! 9's is still just a wet dream on my end.... :cry:

What did the 60'/660' look like?

thanks again.
slip:
1.543
4.236
6.693 @ 110.42
8.393
9.982 @ 142.36

Just talked to Rock On. I think I welded the 1-2 clutches together. We had found the limit of the 3-4 end but not 1-2 until now. I asked "what now?" and he immediately responded that "you are about to install a 4l80e" :) It's awesome to work with someone like Dave. Now he wants me to install and document the installation for a 4l80e. The car has more in it for sure...just gotta get it all to the ground Feels like i'm bouncing off the airbag.....gotta figure all that stuff out like the fast guys do. Now I guess we can test RockOns 4l80e build. I feel really confident that guys can install his 4l60 up to 700/700 with no problems

here is a vid...my camera does poorly at night :(

110 mph in the 1/8 is fucking rolling, especially for a 3800 lb street car.

You've got quite an accomplishement there Jerry. You built that car from the ground up by yourself, and it runs 9's. Thats fucking killer.

Congrats

Are you still going to make the trip to Montgomery on the 22nd?

Sweet! Congratulations on the run.

I know how frustrating it can be getting a trans and converter combo you like. Good luck with the 80E

9 seconds on a stock rear.. thats quite an accomplishment.. been waiting on this :)

Peace,

Actually KP....it is not as exciting as I thought it might be. I guess cause i was so disappointed in my 60' and the tranny/converter. With a t400/4l80e and a tighter stall, i think it will pick up and run the numbers it is supposed to run.

Josh, I will be seeing you SOON :)

Jerry,

Long time coming my friend!!!!! CONGRATS... Thats one hell of an accomplishment with all that you have been through.

:cheers:

thanks Ron...what sux is i watched you run that a LOOOONNG time ago :) Cant wait to see what your new combo is going to do. You have the best of both worlds..your car will run and look bad ass!!! I am indeed jealous.

Then at least you know it will go quicker with a better 60' :) Problem is now that its a 9 second car no one will care until its an 8 second car LOL.

lol Kp you are so right!!! Funny aint it?!! You have a SOLID 9 sec car...mine just squeaked in once....I'd like to be a solid 9.90-10.0 car and i think it will happen. I can live with that and be plenty happy.

Congrats! Running 9's with a 4L60E and a stock rear is a very rare occurence, you might be the only one that I am aware of!!

Interesting how u went 110/142, I went 115.6/144. Maybe my car is falling off in the upper rpms.

How was the air when you raced? I raced on a 90F day in July.

Yours will be solid/mid 9s soon enough, you have the mph and you definately have the power. I took the light weight (if 3300lbs is really light ) and low horsepower approach and thats fairly easy. It takes a little more to get a 3800+ lb turbo car to 60 foot, just get a th400/trans brake and a 12 bolt and spend that track time working on your 60's and tuning and not worrying about something breaking ;)

Congrats on the run Jerry. Once the weather finally cools down she'll get even faster. I need to get my tune wrapped up so I can get out to the track with you guys.

Glad to hear it bud, It's been a long time coming.

10-04-2005, 01:46 PM
thanks again....I THINK i can do 144-145mph so I should have a few more .10s left in her We will see.
Yes it has been a long time coming. I think my converters have been holding me back some....it is hard to get the converter right on a turbo car. I wonder how far the 10bolt will go. I feel like it is being strained now.

That's an impressive jump in mph...I'm stuck in the 128's with my Incons at 13psi. Are you using the stage 1 turbos? NOS? I'd kill for your 60....I'm leaving at 2000 off the footbrake and no boost.

I've been talking to Dave about a 4l80e conversion. Hopefully I'll get some more information pretty soon. My turbo 408 arrived today, now I just have to get that PTE88 from Marko! :drive:

you need the tranny... a crossmember made which looks simple...a harness...a bodymount torque arm, torque converter...flywheel spacer....driveshaft shortened MAYBE (quicksilverado just needed a new yoke on his stock driveshaft) and the pcm modded to work the 4l80e. Gotta cut a small hole in the tunnel....and maybe beat it in a little for the tranny lines. It's been done already...just aint cheap
