    does anybody have a very rough estimate of how much it would cost for like a 4l60/80 that can handle roughly 600rwhp?

    i feel you... i have been veryyyyy fortunate to not snap anything on my passes.... im done for now until the car sells and i get a new one... but i should hopefully have enough cash to do my headers/td's/cam/head/rearend all at the same time... so no worries there

    Yes....my cars lowered with Eibach pro kit. It's slightly lower than the stock cross member, but much stronger as being part of the sub-frame connector tie point. I think I've scraped it a couple of times, but overall not bad at all.

    Personally, I don't want the stress produced from a torque arm pulling on the transmission at all. That was a big factor for getting the Spohn at the time. Now BMR and UMI have that style too.

    B) kind of goes along with the m6 as well - after the rear im probably gonna send mine off to sixspeedsinc.com and have them rebuild it

    i figure there are about $5K in parts that i would like to put on her before i call her "done" which ive already learned these cars are never done - lol

    its kinda true and kinda not... with just a clutch i feel like i can safely touch 500rwhp and 112 lsa cam... in a auto you couldnt do that on a stock one with just a convertor and cooler... so in the longshot if you are going high horsepower... autos wouldnt cost toooo much more... but in the smaller hp around 500 m6 saves a butt load of cash

    yea, my ORY is scraping and im not gonna take the ride height back up to just scrape on something else - i think i will be ok with the tranny mounted one - and its 100 bucks cheaper - but yours is probably better performing

    It really doesn't scrape much as long as you're careful going over speed bumps and driveways. But it will scrape at some point.....just part of the whole lowering deal.

    just kind of curious as to what you paid for your T/A and why you think you overpaid - PM it if you dont want it on here
