Any further results on the .82 housing on the stock turbo? I'm pretty interested in this, since I am trying to go 11's on the stock turbo and intercooler in street tune (Call me crazy
). And this sounded promising from your initial response. Any more track results? (I remember you saying the tranny was slipping/flaring pretty badly the 1st time out). What about lag? Any noticeable difference at all?

Man, if there is any extra lag... I can not feel it. I do have a 2800 PMAC converter.. but I don't think that matters, as it stalls like a stock converter.

I am waiting on a race trans, and really can not do anymore testing until I put it in. I can tell everyone the .82housing made a huge difference in my car, but I really will not have any numbers until late January.

I am very anxious to find out how many .10ths it helps.

Looking at my timeslips, I went 12.4 with a soft launch and that was only with 19psi..

I'll let you know what I find out.

12.4 again.. same boost. But this time it wasn't nearly as cold out. Soft launch (1.7x) and went 108.something.

So *IF* ambient temp. really plays that big of a roll, the car went the same as last time. Tempature difference was about 20*.

Man, this transmission I recieved is incredible. I didn't know *that* was how they were supposed to shift
.

Thanks for the trans. jason. I think Thursday I will put it to the test with 24-25psi and 30* timing. Should be a fun day..

I'll definitly let you know what happens..

Hey! Are you trying to say I am too meticulous? Or your too impatient?

Oh Jason... that transmission is great. Not ONE hiccup..

Would you believe me if I said the tires were giving me some audible feedback on the 3RD gear shift?? Man, that thing hits hard......

Thanks again. Without your help, I would have not been able to go....
