Seth,

Haven't seen that order come through yet, give me a call on Monday and we can discuss the finer details like converter stall, gearing, etc... Are you planning on turboing?

C'mon Seth.... give it up, buddy. There has to be a reason you're beefing up so much. Turbo? Ridiculous cam/rocker combo? That car is going to be one awesome touring ride when all is said and done.

Right now I'm looking at the 3.29 gearing and a 3500(300-500 higher RPM) TC.
And there is a turbo waiting on a shelf for me.

Turbo waiting on a shelf? You mean on a shelf at Intense with a $3000 price tag on it?

For both your checkbook and your tires

Is there a timeline for the set-up being completed (trans & turbo)?

I'm not sure on that? But usually if people are spending that much on a trans they usually upgrade to a HD diff. or an LSD.

x2 on the turbo? Is that down the line or near future? What kit are you looking at NU-LINE, Stattama, Cartuning, Intense, Custom? What are the plans/goals for the turbo (size, IC, etc.)? All I got to say is bolt on some slicks and look for that #2 spot for Bonne'*.

The kit comes with an LSD. He may just need a HD style output shaft and possibly an axle (not sure on this).
