Fuck the fogger system on anything over 150 shot.

You'll burn the pistons with an uneven mix.

Use a direct port set up with fuel and No2 shot direct into the runners on a good intake manifold system.

Also three stage.

Avoid the huge slap of torque on launch will save your rear end and drive train parts from blowing up.

Stage three tuned to hit full power at close to 660 ft mark.

Ain't doin THAT on 87 octane

I took pictures just now of Used original 700R4 & 4L60E input drums with the Turbine Shaft in & pressed out.
And the original 1987 Vette 700R4 Input drum Jeff destructed tested in front of me.
Truly is an engineering flaw in all 1982 700R4 to 4L70E's.

Only reason they hold up most of the time is I think the drum is alloyed with Titanium & Magnesium.
High quality aluminum casting but grain structure is porous yet.

3-4 clutch oil feed hole is drilled intersects in the weakest area that is just 1/4" wide.
All engine Power goes through all the time.
Pics coming.
A Real Eye opener.

No Triptane.
You know what that stuff is.
Like Moonshine But Better.

180-200 Motor Ocatane.

All Racing gas came from WW2 Avaition Fuel.

Roller Cams & Roller Rockers invented just for the Warbirds too.

When fully loaded frictions & steels & apply pistons these 700R4 & 4L60E input drums are somewhat heavy.
Have not weighed loaded but 20-25 lbs is a safe bet.
Live or die on the front oil pump stator shaft bushings.
The Large splined part the torque converter goes onto.
3 pressed in bronze bushings the turbine input shaft spins on.

No Center support & Intermediate shaft like a 4L80E & Turbo 400 has.

Go On & On.

Everyone always comes back Overdrive....
So & So says 1000+ HP.
I have seen them advertised on Facebook 1500 + HP.
Look at the pictures.
Do you really think 1500 HP will work with just 1/4" inch of material transferring all Engine Torque ?

Its a miracle they hold up at 550 HP for Gunny.

Y'all got E-85?

I had a buddy did an E-85 conversion and was running a pro-charger with a 4" belt.

E-85 has a high octane rating and a shit load cheaper than the race fuel I was running.

Ran hi 8's in a street legal fox body

Solid axle of course.

4L80e is a pretty big trans.
I recall Hardcore stating some mods are required to install into a C5.
C6 no worry had stock.
