Any suggestions greatly appreciated and sorry if I sound like an idiot, just trying to learn.

Join Date Mar Posts 1, One great thing about the Sniper is that it has a built-in datalogger recorder. Just push the record button next time you go for a drive, and when you are finished you can play it back and see what happened. Pop the SD card into your computer and you can look at the whole drive. That's the quickest way to debug the problem. I use Dropbox.

Scroll through the datalog to the problem area. I find the most helpful datalog function, is overlaying the datalog on your Config File.

I'm in the habit of using the datalog Overlay feature every time I review a datalog. You can literally "playback" a recorded event, and watch it as it happened on any screen. Minimize shrink the datalog window, and move it to the bottom of any Config File screen.Now I need a trans Now I need a trans:- The time now is Fri Apr 10, am.

I just took my conversion van to have the exhaust connected so I can drive it around until I get the proper exhaust system installed and had a problem.

I got the van to the shop and they tried to pull it on to their lift alignment rack style but it wouldn't go. I knew it had some sloppy shifts when I drove it up there but I thought it was the computer needing to relearn. So now I need a 4l60E trans!!! I was looking at the monster trans. Anyone have any other recommendations? I would like a trans that is beefed up enough to handle pulling a boat if needed or just to pull that heavy ass van around on it's own.

Sounds like time for a 4L80E. What's involved? I keep hearing it is an upgrade but I don't know what it takes to do the conversion? It will require a reprogram of the computer to properly control it. You will need a front speed sensor added to the computer. There is a kit available for it. You will need a shortened driveshaft and a modified trans crossmember. Depending on your frame, you may be able to just slide the trans crossmember back on the frame and drill new holes.

You will need to extend the trans cooling lines. If the van came in a configuration with a 4L80E from the factory, you may be able to get new cooling lines from the dealer and if so this is the way to go. You may need a new flexplate as the 4L80E torque converter pattern is larger in diameter than the 4L60E flexplate. You will need the correct torque converter. Mine came from Finish Line Transmissions, and the build quality was excellent.

I also had them add a TCI low gearset, changing first from 2. The acceleration from a dead stop is almost as strong as the 4L60E was. Well, a brand spanking new 4L60E on its virgin run that is, before a strong engine busts its cherry all over the underside of the van. With the 4L60E and a stock engine the trans always feels a little off, like it's kinda spongy, but a 4L80E feels like strong and reliable like a direct gear drive would even behind an engine with a little juice.

If the vans came with the 80E combo It's not that difficult a swap. Speeder wrote: It will require a reprogram of the computer to properly control it. Sounds like a good deal of work! I am not sure the wife will go for the added cost of doing the swap. I would heavily consider it down the road but I just dropped a crap load of money doing the stroker engine and I need to get this going quickly.

I don't really need fast as much as I would like strong!!Discussion in ' High Performance Modifications ' started by ffshuFeb 28, Feb 28, 1.

Here is what I would do if I were only looking to make to This should get you in the mid to upper 's on pump gas. VERY good heads for the money. Just some light port work is all it takes to make them outperform AFR eliminator heads.

Im not saying they need any port work because they dont but everybody likes to compare heads to the AFR eliminators and these profilers are right there with the AFR's and outperform them with some port work.

Last edited: Feb 28, Feb 28, 4. Well a man taught me a long time ago that, "speed is money, how fast do you wanna go? The heads are usually the most expensive, and I figured that would set me back around bucks. Machine work and all the other parts add up, that's why I'm trying to find a good combination that's proven on the power and start gathering pieces and parts now so when I finish the body and interior, I won't have to try and shell out a bunch of money at one time so I can ride.

So to answer your question on budget, I don't want to go crazy but I would like to think that I can do this for around 4k. I already have a block but I haven't had it checked yet, so I don't know if it's any good. Thanks for any input, I like hearing what other people have done and learn from their success or their failures.

I run hyperutectics in my street motors. I don't plan forced induction or nitrous. They don't rattle either. Then get as much head as you can afford. Something in about cc. I sounds lovely. I haven't driven it yet though.

Shaft flange is there also. Top mounted starter and exhaust manifolds and risers. Front engine mounts included. That would be a VD. Had 40 hours on it when it was removed and a new intake manifold and all new rings and bearings were installed.

Re: stroker June 20th,PM.

Re: stroker You have to clearance the pan rails and in some instances, use an oil pan specific for the added stroke.

It's relatively easy to do with a die grinder once you set the crank in the block to show where the extra clearance is needed. Just don't get to aggressive, you might strike water.

I'd rethink this. Re: stroker a with 6 in rods rocks. Scott Liggett. Re: stroker I had it done on my block at a machine shop. It didn't cost that much. Still using the stock pan. Use the ARP bolts for stroker motors and there will be less grinding.Thread Tools.
