Question Monster Transmission OR rebuild locally?

I asked a similar question about two years ago, and was told it's better to find someone locally to rebuild my transmission. Now that I have moved back to Texas, I am recommending that my new...

I have the 3" version with the cut-out. I heard the 3.5" needed the pan hard bar relocation mount to clear the axle area. I figured the 3" was enough for daily driving. When I'm at the track, I...

Thanks. That looks pretty cool. I'm wondering how much cutting is involved in making it fit there. Do they have any step-by-step instructions anywhere?

ProCharger install guide?

Is there an instruction manual for installing a ProCharger in a 4th gen F-body? I found one for the Vortec kit, and the Huron Speed turbo kits. I can't find one for the ProCharger (P1 or D1) kits....

What do you mean by "Monsoon stereo CD $40"? Is that the CD changer in the trunk?

Oh sweet! There is some math for this. Based on that chart/formula, I would probably only get about 2% more hp with a head gasket swap only. The gasket/piston swap might give me 3% more. Right now,...

Yeah, I know. I'm just worried about my stock internals. No one makes a forged flat top piston. It's either dished, or domed. Summitt has the only forged pistons in a stock size. Again, all of theirs...

I haven't touched the block, so it should still be 0" deck height. If .035-.040 is ideal quench for an LS motor, then I'd rather go with the .036" gaskets from Cometic. The .041" (Fel-Pro) won't...

I haven't heard much about quench. I saw a Youtube video where Brian Tooley was talking about it, but he was explaining detonation and compression. So, what is this quench measurement? Is that the...

I didn't install the heads or cam myself. I had it done at a car club member's shop. The cam comes with some advance, so it should have been installed "straight up".

I have the BTR LS .660" lift dual springs, so valve float shouldn't be an issue.

Well, I can't find my cam card right now. The specs on TSP's website don't say what advance it comes with. I think it has either +3 or +4 advance. Either way, it doesn't change the valve events by...

Head Gasket swap...is it worth it?

I was just playing with a compression calculator, and realized that I could increase my compression quite a bit just be changing the head gaskets. Right now, I have a stock bottom end, and stock size...

I would check the valve covers. If you have aftermarket rocker arms in there, then they are probably hitting inside the valve covers.

I'm too cheap to spend $1200 on injectors. I was able to get mine (used) for $175. My tuner just happened to have a set that he just took off another customer's car. Anyway, I think these are the...

About injectors...make sure you get full injector data with them. Some of the bigger aftermarket injectors don't have all the data needed to tune them at idle. That could cause issues trying to stop...

My trans cooler is about 11" wide by 7" tall. It barely fits in front of the radiator. There could be other places to put it, but this is where mine was installed.

It sounds like a good plan. You will need bigger fuel injectors. I recommend the FAST 38lb injectors. I doubt you will max those out on a heads/cam build. I haven't yet.

So, all you really needed was a junkyard 5.3L or 6.0L. You could have boosted either of those up to 500 whp with the supercharger that you had. Do you still have the supercharger?

Well, mine wasn't packaged very well. I'm not sure if you recall, but my first one had a puncture hole in it. At least the guy shipped me another one for free. The second one is on my car now. :D
