315 up front fits easy (18x11) and a 335 out back 18x12 no problem with room for a 355 if you wanted to.

A good video to explain it all!

It still isn't out and into production yet....  Will announce it when they are in stock and ready to ship!

I'll work my magic... trust me.... but it's hard to offer any group pricing when I don't even know the final price  :grin:

When these come out I see Tremec selling lots of them.... they will not be the same price as the current $3200 Magnum... they are going to cost more.

I knew you wouldn't get the Porsche.... but the BMW seems a valid choice.  I would've gotten the IS-Fsport as mentioned simply due to no brainer reliability.... plus I keep my cars for well over 100K miles.

My work beater '06 Tundra 4.0 V6 has 170K miles (bought it with 115k miles for $6K 3 years ago) and the only major service work for me has been replace the p/s lines, new radiator.... plus normal fluid changes.  It has no issues at all and keeps on ticking.... but I'll probably sell it (for probably $5K) and get something newer simply for the write off.  I'm a huge fan of Toyota/Lexus reliability and performance (albeit a turbo BMW engine is more fun.... just would have me waiting for the check engine light to come on).  I've owned nearly every generation of 4Runner and LandCruiser which are also some of the most reliable vehicles on the planet.

Word on the street is September timeframe for these.... which may mean October/Nov knowing Tremec production timeframes.  That is all for now....

You can get them modified that way...... but not directly from Tremec and they cost considerably more than the $3195 MSRP of a standard T56 Magnum.

To make the current T56 Magnum work you simply need to either modify the shifter that comes with it to move the shifter back... and shorten your current dshaft a couple inches then add a 31 spline yoke.  Other than that.... the mount is in the same place etc.  Most of the people on the list just want a drop in solution where you change out the yoke and then they will sell their current trans is my guess.

When these become available and are in stock .... I will make it public on there.

I enjoyed owning your other white CTSv with 6speed manual...

I also bought a truck.... 2017 Dodge Ram Ecodiesel 4x4.... averaging 23mpg after 15,000 miles.  I really enjoy it.  Can tow 9000lbs

I've never seen subs that big!  My system is 100% Klipsch speakers with a Denon AVR-X6200W receiver and a single 12" self powered Klipsch sub.  9.1 surround and is all that I will ever need.

Looking good.  Rebuild those rocker arms with a trunion bearing kit. 

What was the cost to do the manifold coating?  I need a pair done.... can you share which place did it and approx cost?

Parts WTB / Re: WTB LS2 LS3 corvette oil pan
« on: April 04, 2019, 02:13:50 PM »
The crate LS3 engines (eRod) are not the same pan. 

CHEVROLET PERFORMANCE C6 CORVETTE OIL PAN 12624617

I can get them brand new from BTR.  email me  norcalmotorsport@gmail.com

Of note... this pan won't fit into an FD using the Samberg swap kit without cutting/welding on the pan.  Everyone uses the Fbody '98-02 pans

Forced Induction/Nitrous / Re: Low profile roots blower options LS3
« on: March 29, 2019, 01:41:19 PM »
You mean a centrifugal style?

Save money on the blower and get the most CI you can afford

Agreed
425-440rwhp will put any FD into the high 10's with traction and 6speed (heads/cam/headers LS1/2)
525-550rwhp will put any FD into the high 9's with traction and 6speed (402ci+ setup with good heads/intake)

Remember that pretty much any blower with bracketry/intercooler/cooling upgrades will add 80-100lbs on the front end.... The beauty of our RX-7 swaps is the lightweight... don't really need all that power.  Mike (LS1-FD who used to frequent on here) had a 402ci setup with FAST90, ported heads/headers and a 75hp nitrous shot and it was beating our buddies 1000rwhp twin turbo '97 GTS Viper on highway pulls repeatedly without issue.

Also plan to overbuild your current cooling system as it will be inadequate if you have the Samberg radiator.

I picked 2 of these up for $1800 each  with the PROMO code "ALWAYS"

Looks like they are now $2K.... but you can still use that code if it appears at the top of the screen (purchases over $1K).  If it doesn't appear email me and I'll buy it using my account.
