Good to hear.

Now I think we need some major video whorage of Zilla back in action.

No screech. A little whine though.

They told me to take it easy, but not SUPER easy. They said I could get on it a bit from a roll.

Photos coming in a bit, and some shakedown cruise troubleshooting too. Things are looking good. That shift kit is INSANE. Even the TCC lockup for OD at 48mph jerks the whole car.

It did that before, so I certainly hope so! I've been told by those that try to follow me that the whole car twists and puffs of smoke come off the tires when I hit second. The Series 1 second gear shift is more brutal than the Series 2, but we lack the power at the 3rd gear shift the S2 has. My second gear showed the effects of this.

Anyway, the first pic, 2 minutes after the reunion:

3 shots of that beatuifully clean trans:

Note the hard drive magnets were put back. The trans builder really liked that idea. He agreed there would be no way to determine if it extended the life of the trans, but that it has to help to some extent. And can't cause any damage.

Bigass trans cooler with built-in thermostat bypass:

$2755.12 is the total damage after my discount. It actually went over $3k. Terms of my discount cannot be discussed in public.

Running lean above 2k rpm'* under load, with KR to match. On a 10-mile or so shakedown with Greyhare riding shotgun with the Actron, his impression was that the KR was backing off, and the rich/lean toggle was becoming more prevalent than the 'lean' by the second half of the drive.

In a nutshell, it'* got maybe 30 miles on this Throttle Body, and it'* learning. Idle, even this morning in the cold (39 degrees F) is nearly perfect now.
