Friday im dropping off old Red at Kurgan Motorsports again for some more upgrades, they are upgrading my Already built 4r70W with a full manual valve body, installing a B&M ratchet shifter, dropping in a smaller pulley and retuning for the new transmision and pulley changes. Im going from a 2.9RR to a 2.7 so I should pick up a couple pounds off Boost and hopefully a few horses to match last time she made almost 600RWHP. One thing im curious about is if Vortechs hight traction pulley is a sticky as the RR ones. I Cant wait to see what this new shifter is going to feel like Im pretty excited, and also curious about how much power im going to pickup. MY new car hauler finally made it in so I dont have to keep renting one to haul my car around LOL.

Awesome man, Ide like to see another GM eating machine brought to life LOL. On that tranny perhaps you should just buy one directly from PA rather then ship yours around.

Thats kinda what i was thinking. Im strongly considering relocating to Pheonix AZ soon so ill have many more options when it comes to Mod Motors here (currently visiting). PA and Stage 3 both do trans builds but as of right now, leaning strongly towards PA. Im currently job searching in AZ so kinda nervous to spend too much saved $ until i find something steady.

Me too!! I jacked up alot back in hs and college with credit cards and loans and what not, 27 years old and STILL cleaning up my credit so i stick to cash as well. I have $4500 to play with right now, just need to use it wisely to get the most bang, i want to get as close to complete as i can, even if it means waiting on the supercharger itself for a few months. If i stay in CO I wont be driving it until March anyway lol!

they're not terribly expensive. between selling yours and finding a used one you would prolly only have 1500 into the swap. sounds a little pricey but i bet you'd be knocking on the 700 door then and then maybe you could stop with all the different tuning changes lol.

any plans to get the car to the track soon?

Good luck OP with those new mods and this cooler weather(at least here in Tx) vs when you had it dynoed back in Sept you should put down some damn decent numbers!

Thanks Im definatley moving on to another ride after this round of MODS. Well maybe I have to still do the rollbar but thats it. Oddly we have been having a rather warm winter here in East Tennessee. It has been in the high 60's atleast half of this month when normally its in the 30-40 range.
