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.

So its free since no price listed?

I'll give you $20K   :D

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?

The crate LS3 engines (eRod) are not the same pan. 


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

You mean a centrifugal style?

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

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.

I haven't had cable in 15 years.... but then again I was working for the first .com companies in my mid 20's haha.  I watch a few of these shows like Tavarish and Rob Dahm....  It's just entertainment and my kind of REALITY TV!

There is some stat I read that every 1,000,000 views these guys are making $6-7K/mo.... which doesn't include all the free crap they are getting.  Cleetus McFarland makes 2-3 videos per week and each one gets 750,000 views+.  Let's say 8 videos on average per month.... x 750K view= $36-42K per month income!  That is some loot!!!!  Plus all his toys are writeoffs.

I just looked at this, and in the suggestions it showed an FB for sale for $27k, and a Cosmo for less at $20K, what is going on with RX7 prices these days??

Everyone is trying to cash in on their junk while the economy is good.

Ain't that the truth.... anyone want to buy a 1200rwhp turbo LS9 FD this spring for $45K?  :)

Drivetrain / Re: 450 whp NA in an iron 5.3?
« on: February 19, 2019, 02:14:56 AM »
After you factor in machine work, parts, etc you should just get a 6.0 block for the extra cubes and namely torque.

I had an LS1 with AFR 205 heads/LS6 intake/233/239 cam/headers/T56 Magnum in 2005 and it made 440rwhp on 91 octane... I doubt you will do that with your combo on a 5.3.  Cubic inches n/a are your friend.  With boost.... just have an efficient turbo based upon your engine size/needs.

If you want it as a drag car the iron block is fine.... if you want it to handle the best possible you need an aluminum block to shave off the extra 80lbs.  Having a 10 second car that handles is not an issue with a V8 RX-7 swap. 

I have had both (turbo LS FD drag style car/big cubic inch N/A FD road race setup) and I'll be honest with you.... the road race car is a lot more fun.  Drag racing is 8-10 seconds of adrenaline rush.... road racing is 20-30 minutes chasing/passing other cars......

What is your location?  If you need any BTR parts I'm a dealer.. plus clutches etc.

$60K for a non stroker swapped car and mismatched paint LOL.   Never going to happen

I've got a crazy 441ci setup for sale with Dailey billet oiling system if you want to make 800hp flywheel :)

Parts for Sale / Summit Racing has brand new LS9 blocks for $1900 shipped
« on: February 13, 2019, 03:21:50 PM »
For those of you contemplating building a boosted motor these blocks are bad ass and this price is nuts.  I paid more for mine used than this price shipped!

I ordered one today for a customer 376ci build I'm putting together with a big turbo (Fbody application)... arrives March 4th or so.
I get good pricing on Molnar/K1 crank/rods and other brands, gaskets, anything on the BTR website, ARP fasteners pretty much anything for an LS build if you need help

Attributes only the LSA and LS9 block have: cast from a better grade aluminum and rotocast (gets bubbles out and denser material as a result), piston squirters
The LS9 block has billet main caps and the LSA has nodular iron caps (other production blocks are cast iron caps.... LS7 is also billet). 
LS9 block has larger 13mm head bolt/stud holes vs. 12mm for LSA and other production blocks.

The Touareg sounds like every one I've heard of once they get to about 80K miles :)  Great in concept but typical Audi/VW issues.

E46 BMW's are stupid cheap....

Lexus IS350, GS300, LS430 are all under $10K .... but not a stickshift.  Can't have it all with total reliability :)
