i wanted to ask the 3.71 fdr is the N* FDR on 00+ right? what is needed to get er closer to 4 to 1?
also recently while at the Jyard i took the range switch off a 96 80E (i was just screwing around) and it looks like with a spare selector shaft you could move it to alongside the shifter itself and get it out of the way of exhaust heat...
I also mocked up my buddy eric'* set of PS headers on one of my spare blocks and took some measurements from the belhousing face to the headers in several spots...
if you would like the pics/specs let me know and i'll email em to ya...it looks like it'd be close but PS headers may clear the shift linkage....which woul sure be nice when we end up throwing one in eric'* Riviera
keep it up buddy, i cant wait to see more...
The 3.71 came in the STS and ETC with the 300hp engine. I thought there were only two FDRs, but found out there are like 8 from 2.7x up to 3.71. I thought there was a 4.10, but couldn't find anything about it. There'* a 3.48, 3.05, 3.11, and more.
I am not using headers, but turbocharging, so I will have a custom crossover pipe I'll make anyway, to clear the shifter and switch. I am confused about the converters... Dacco says they pin the stock N* viscous clutch so it'* always locked on engagement. I would like a real clutch, too. Who have you talked to??? Midwest Converters? Contact info?
