and order the 65E to 65E HD conversion kit (It'll replace the three weakest parts of the regular 4T65, I don't remember all of them but the differential is one of them)
While I agree the tranny is a weak point, with a tranny that is healthy, and one of the base turbo kits or milder ones only running like 8psi boost or so, the tranny will probably hold up fine unless the car is launched hard on slicks or something like that. Obviously with the turbo kit the tranny is going to get more abuse, however with the base kits that only put the car in the mid-high 13 second range, I'd hardly be worrying about the tranny at that point.
Just my $.02 though.
Just wonderin if anyone has a line on a turbo kit for a '99 Bonne. I've been looking for one and I am having a hard time finding anything. Even just the turbo itself would be fine because I can dial it up/down to get the proper compression out of it.
Are you planning on installing this yourself or were you going to have it installed by someone?
