caminated2k-what kinda stereo you got? That'* pretty cool that you ran those times with those mods. Whats with the Intense certified installer part of your sig? just curious.
Thanks for the compliments I was rather happy with it'* performance as well. Considering I didn't help it at all by running the stock thermostat and having no CAI

Stereo....Nothing special really... I run the stock bose headunit and run an MTX 2150X bridged amplifier into 2 MTX 3000 12" subs. With pushing 14.7 volts according to the information center, it puts out good power and hit. I used to be heavy into that stuff, this sub setup is the only thing I kept.. low end subs, but they have lasted forever and take a beating.

The transmission can handle a 6,000+rpm shift just fine as long as it has good line pressure. I'll be up around 6300 also, but I think I might request 6100 as my cam will be trailing off in power at that point.

The INTENSE installer portion of the sig ... I just moved out to MI, but lived in Wisconsin.. I still go back all the time, but it'* saying I am approved by INTENSE to install product, such as Camshafts, Transmissions, Torque Converters, Rockers, anything. I have done 3 L67 swaps into GT'*, Installed 9 camshafts... a few in SSEi'* , tons of rockers, valve springs, etc. I know my way around these cars I was bored and didn't want rockers so I tossed a cam in my car... that was it'* only modification for a while LOL.

Anyway, hope that answers the questions

Be willing to do a tranny swap sometime in the Chicagoland area when mine finally goes?

The stock trani is rated for 6500 rpm max in 1st gear and 6200 rpm in 2nd gear.
I remember reading that on a GM site technical sheet......that I can't find now.

Heh..heh...that'* what we need. A GP.....guinea pig that is... to run us through the intracacies of a backyard trani swap.

My trani gave me a fright yesterday. I was playing around...as usual...and decided to show my son how the anti lock brakes work to stop the car in panic mode from 60 mph.
They worked like a charm, pulling us to a vibrating stop. Then I went to accelerate away and the trani slipped and then slammed into gear, abruptly squealing the tires. I let off right away and don't think it did any damage but it was a fright at first when I hit the go pedal and nothing happened then.... bang... screech.
Must have been a fluid starvation issue caused by the sudden stop.
Weird trani.

I've noticed a lot of strange transmission issues after a real hard stop.

As for a back yard trans swap... man, the stories I have

I've done Headers right outside my apartment building with a jack and hand tools. A transmission can most certainly be changed. Main tool that makes it easier is cheery picker. It can be done in a day no problems. I've done writeups on doing an L67 swap.. found at none othe than www.l67swap.com... look for the 97+GP instructions. it'* pretty much the same process for the SSEi.

you make it sound too easy...

What would it cost to put a L67 and a HD tranny in my car? Parts+labor?
