I plan to swap in my higher stall speed converter over the winter. I think the extra 400rpms will help me off the line quite a bit.Now that's cool.
I'll never be able to push 4th gear, but 3rd gear with lockup would potentially go to 154mph. Good enough for mid to low 9s!What will be the estimated trap speed if the converter is locked up in 4th gear on 1/4 mile?
Is that on street tires or slicks?I plan to swap in my higher stall speed converter over the winter. I think the extra 400rpms will help me off the line quite a bit.

I'm assuming my issue was due to the oil pan dowels binding in the block. I verified the pan fully seated this time around. When I removed the converter access window in the pan and ran my finger along the rear cap I could feel a small amount of rtv protruding. I took it for a test drive and the leaks are nonexistentSomething something well oiled machine lol. Just be careful about blobs getting squeezed out into the oil pan, it's ok to go thinner where less is needed and then thicker where the gaps are wider.
I just hope it doesn't peel the undercoating I'm hoping I can do some more test driving while these 40+ degree days last and bump up the trans duty cycles. I'm also plumbing the AEM TruBoost to both wastegates to see if one solenoid can control bothAwesome! Now your auto rust protection system is disabled.

Thanks! Time will tellNice progress! Looking good.
I agree on the RTV and the plastic tubing issues raised above. A small bead (2-3mm) of RTV is all that is usually needed. No need to cover the entire flange. You really don't want gobs breaking off and blocking your oil pump screen.
Also, having used that tubing a lot in an industrial setting, it gets very soft when it gets hot. Like Bitter said, it'll just blow out of the fitting under pressure, especially if the circuit sees repeated pressure cycling during operation. As it is the tubing can work itself out of the fitting under pressure cycling at room temp, heat just makes it worse.
Cool to see your progress! Keep it up!
