    If you are going to be pushing 800rwhp then you should probably get the WaveTrac.

    If you are staying around 500-550, I'd say the TrueTrac.

    I personally don't think you need "chromoly" anything...just my .02.

    Does the price on the tranny vary? Or is there a set price? I should probably contact them directly.

    So don't do the chromoly? Just buy regular control arms and panhard bar?

    I think they have package prices for each level of transmission. Other nice thing is that they do not require a core. You can keep you existing transmission, sell it, or do whatever.

    The place I used required a core unfortunately, but I wrote the serial # down and specifically requested to get my exact transmission back that was being rebuilt because it only had 12K miles on it at the time and I'm sure the other rebuilt transmissions had much more on them.

    I decd I'm going to lower my expectations to 575-620 whp and bite the bullet and get the M9 for $4,469. That's a grand cheaper then the other, then the tranny is almost $3,000 cheaper then the other. So now I can afford the rer end maybe I'll get my shocks/springs if I have enough. Then next summer I'll finish it off. I appreciate all the help. I'll definitely keep everyone updated when the build progresses.

    I won't! I'll upload pictures of my car now later today so you can all see what I'm working with. Should I go with a fast 90 intake? Or will an ls6 do fine?

    Actually, I'm running 3.73 with a 6spd Bird and it seems to be just right for the get away with 480rwhp D1SC Supercharger. Can you say street legal CARB approved..... Can't really imagine needing anything more on the street for a daily driver. It's got so much torque down low that it your not careful your just spinning the tires anyways.
    The other day I was squeezing the gas just to have some quick get away fun and pass some guy in a HEMI Charger and lit up the tires about 50mph without even putting it past half way on the gas. I spin the tires for about 50ft and shot past the guy like he was standing still. It was fun !!! When you get to this HP it's all about traction. I have tracklinc bars... etc... etc... etc... and with drag radials it still burn up tires at street pressures. Put your tires to 14psi and it's a different story. But, then you risk wrecking in the turns. You have to know what your combinations are. For an auto I wouldn't go anything lower than 3.42's that come stock in the 6spd. Otherwise you won't be able to get any traction on the street and you lose the mid range drive. Just my imo. FI gearing doesn't have to be so low because you have the grunt to push the gear.










    Enjoy your build.... Mine is done for my street Bird.... I'm focusing on getting a LS7 Vette and SCing it now. It's all about little steps to perfection.
    I also own a '03 Anniversary Vette that I will not touch. It is the perfect daily / weekend driver abosolutely fantastic car. Right power, right handling, right ride for a go fast fun with the girl friend or wife. You really don't need anything more on the street.



    Sorry, just had to show off the LS1 Vette.... My Dream Car...
