how do you like the 6r80? I’m contemplating on backing one behind my 2v when I go turbo
I like the 6r80 a lot. It takes a good bit to make it shift just right with a loose converter, but it’s great. The low first gear is nice because rear gears don’t have to be steep, then cruise rpm is lower.

Turned out, the car was staying lean almost the whole pull. I have to check fuel pressure tomorrow. It’s got a lot left in it.

Oh I bet mph wise there’s more to gain and the 60ft can improve some yet . Wouldn’t be surprised if she goes 137 next time out .

Oh yeah, the 60 will be better for sure. It left nice and right after the hit, it fell flat on its face, then got back in to power and unloaded again. It’s got something going on.

Hooked up a boost sensor and fuel pressure gauge. Now I can monitor them right on the dash. Also found out it’s only making 6psi of boost. So that’s pretty cool. I can still turn it up! Lol View attachment 34644


Love the dash . If that’s on 6psi, 10psi is going to be a blast . Mine needs an anti roll bar . Still cut 1.6 60fts on a front side no prep .

Did you make it out to the track event today? What kind of times are you running?
Yea I did was no prep . 7.58 at 91 was the best with a 1.6 60ft the car needs more timing up top finally figured out why it cuts out around 5700 not enough timing it’s blowing the spark out . 7.68 and bunch of 7.70’s . There’s only 11 degrees timing in it at 13psi when it cuts out around 5700 so time to adjust it and test . 3.90’s or 4.10’s are in the future and a anti roll bar

Tuner made some changes today! So far it’s making a HUGE difference. I finally got a clean pull, without it going lean and breaking up. And it made 10 psi. It pulled hard enough that it kind of took my breath away. I’m getting ready to go get another log.
