Thanks for the heads up and cooling my nerves on that. I was scared that because the turbo usually wants about 12-15psi on average as oppsed to the SC'* 3-5 that the tranny was gonna blow in a year, if not sooner, like the first test run. I wanna do the other mods ASAP, as far as suspension goes, im thinking poly bushings, stiffer springs and stronger sway bars for that high-speed cornering .

I want to make the turbo kit around $2500-3000 so more people can beat GTP'* and SSEis' :P. But will have to decide to have the turbo spooled up by 2000-2500 rpm so basically when you hit the gas you are moving and grooving. Or at 3000 which would allow for more power gains if people wish to turn up the boost. We most likely want to use the APEXi AVC-R and you can adjust how much power you want to make. Just and idea of what we plan for it.

I will be opening up the new ADTR Bonneville Store soon so you can see all that is available right now for your Bonneville.

It turns out the SSBC makes a big brake kit for 2000+ Bonneville'*. You can have 13" rotors in the front (need 18" wheels to clear them) with 2 piston calipers. And in the rear have 12" rotors. I will be having it up on the site so you can check it out.

Are you talking the tubo hydromatic transmission? My dads truck had one with the positrac transmission on his silveradoe big ten truck. I used to kill vettes in that thing back in high school in the late 70s/early 80s.
