    What kind of stall speed did you settle on? Still going with the gt40-b cam or are you going to tweak it this year? Hopefully you can get 10sec blast out of it!:banana:

    yea its still a GT40 B cam set up

    stall speed should be between 3400-3600. steve agree'd with me that going looser wouldnt help anything since i have such a short power band.

    You are better off with the hard tube. I hate my lokar for exactly the reason of taking forever to fill the dang trans...

    I couldn't get the solid/locking tube to fit on my car. So I have the Lokar, but it certainly isn't ideal.

    New bell housing is on... converter is fitted up with the trans and flywheel. Backing plate is fitted up also. Just need to get off my ass and pull the pilot bearing out and get the trans bolted up
