Got it through Pete K, its the same construction as an edge, 2600-2800 with an STR of 2.5 has a reinforcing ring on the rear and an anti ballooning plate. Real nice unit, and seems to have given me exactly what I was looking for in the low end torque area.

Cool!

I've heard that's the single best seat of the pant's upgrade you can possibly make for the dollar. The pull is supposed to be a crazy improvement.

So I take it your happy!

That's great Bob! I know were you pretty let-down about losing your low-end umph. Glad it made enough difference to get ya thrilled.

Yea and we'll need video proof to verify Bob's claim that it tears off the line.

:devil:

Fun time now! :partyon: :cheers:

Bob, if you get a chance, try a wot run. The 2800/3.54 combo I had in the 87 was sweet. At wot the Vette felt like it never shifted except for a teensy-tiny drop from 3rd to 4th, or was it @ lock-up? I can't remember now, it's been a while. Ram-Air, shram air, I took out a WS6 from 60-140, no problem. He gave up around 100 b/c @ 140 he wasn't even in my mirror. ;)

It took me a few weeks to learn how to control the launches. :devil:

That's great news Bob! I was hoping you'd find the torque you lost.
