    Installing 3500 stall

    Okay so i got everything in but the damn tranny lines i cant hook them back in to the transmission. So my question is there a trick or way that i need to approach this because my car is jacked up and i wasted about 9 hours on the 5 hours project. Please help

    I haven't pulled our tranny lines but I know the power steering lines are two different sizes...did you accidently switch the lines? they can be a pain in the a hole to get linedup. slide the fitting back from the end of the line and push the line as deep into the female fitting on the tranny and use some hand pressure to tweak the line so its centered in the hole...be very carefull to not cross thread fittings
    good luck man!

    Ya that's what i meant sorry, man we messed with those things for like 2 hours before we quite for the day. We are lost also do you have to tune the car for a stall because i have the diablo so what do i need to tune ( i just heard you need to re-tune your car) Thanks

    I don't have or have ever worked with a diablo and am just learning the hptuners program....but I've been told that you are supposed to tune for a higher stall.
    you might want to ask in the computer tuning section
    happy tuning

    So did you get the lines hooked back up to the tranny then?

    You are limited to the tuning you can do with the Diablo.

    Have you downloaded their software to do data logging?

    If not you should. Go do some driving let the car relearn the change you made. After a couple drive cycles hit the freeway and set the cruise (D not O/D ) after at least a 7 mile cruise start data logging. I would do a 20 mile complete cycle while logging. Hit a couple off ramps where you have access to go straight back on the freeway while doing a full throttle 1/4 mile blast.
    Leave the car in D don't try to shift it.

    Now watch your data and adjust tune from there.

    You can usually add some low rpm timing since the motor isn't under such a load due to the loose con.
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!

    Ya i got all that stuff down but do i need to raise my shift point now that i put the stall in. Also does anyone know if there is a break in period or not. Its a 3500 tci street fighter stall by the way if that helps.

    NO break in.

    But let me guess from prior issues I've had with TCI it doesn't stall to 3500. . . . . . ?

    well i had a 3200 did not tune the the car till i put my headers on, i had to bring my shift point down about 400 rpm. the car would bounce off the rev limiter when i ran it wide open and had a cupple nitrous back fires from it bouncing off the rev limiter. good luck and fill us in on how you like the stall

    Yeah anything we plan on running bottle on we don't go more than 2800 on street cars. That 2800 will go 34-3600 all day when you smack 175-250 right out of the gate.

    Are you hitting the rev limiter? Or does it start to nose over on power befoe it shifts?
    It all depends on that.

    I had a scare today, while i was driving i guess the tranny cooler line came undone when i was driving and got on my rear tires. Well i floored it and ended up in the ditch missed a covert three light poles and no damage to the goat. I was doing about 45 and i just went into a 360 its was scary. Iam just hoping there is no damage to the engine but i drove it for like 30 miles and it sounded and drove fine.

    Shouldn't be any issues as long as you didn't hit the oil pan on any curbs.

    I would thank the Big guy up stairs you drove away with no damage and you weren't hurt.
