A 4r70w(which is an updated aode) is what you want if you are not going the GV route. They are commonly used behind the coyote also in conversion kits. They definately don't lack strength or the ability to withstand a fair bit of torque.
I linked the controller to it in my previous post.
This will allow you to adjust the shift point and shift hardness. So you could have a switch setup that will change from a smooth slow shift to a hard shift if you wanted to flog the car a bit.
Never done it.
You can get aftermarket controllers for them. I'd assume you'd be able to get harnesses as well.
But it's not just about doing the job - it's about more complication. More things to go wrong - all of which you know nothing about (no offense).
Offense taken, you can't just say no offense and everything will OK. Thats like saying "Don't take this the wrong way but you are a dickhead" and then its your fault for taking it the wrong way. Man you can cut hard sometime's Hybrid, I think I need a cup of tea and a lie down.
He forgot to mention that you are a soft cock. No offense .......
Pretty easy to install, electronics are straightforward. I used broader performance trans and bauman controls. Very happy with my setup but am also sure that I would be happy with a GV solution. The thing that swung it for me was rebuilding my C4 and then going GV would have cost me more $$.
We put a GV behind the C6 in the grey car. Easy to install but needs a new tail shaft and cost around $3k all up. I generally leave it in auto and it engages at 48mph, dropping rpm by around 400-500 in top gear. Works great.
In hindsight, I would change the diff ratio first as I was seeking lower cruising rpm. Secondly, I would look at an overdrive gearbox like others have said.
I am long past drag racing (mostly). Victory at the lights is taken care of by 412ft/lbs of 390 goodness ;-)
I think it is time too get my car to where I like it. There are a few things that need attention due to the fast pace at the end just to get it on the road so now I have had some fun with it, it is now time to change a few things.
First off the engine will need to come back out. The bottom end I bought from the states just does not feel balanced well at all. I have had a few comments made to me and I agree with them. It is now at the stage where it is ruining the drive and it vibrates way too much. So with that happening I might take the chance to take it off the road and do some things.
1. Engine out and off to engine builder to rebalance the bottom end
2. While that is happening then EFI may be a real opportunity. Love the carby but never played with EFI so I feel I wouldn't mind
3. Car off to Steves to fix up a few little chips and nicks
4. Looking for a rear interior as the one I put in is rubbish and is missing all the tags etc. if anyone has a set of rear fastback side trims I would be interested,not fussed on colour as I plan to cover them but need to be in good nick
5. Finish the centre console
6. Put in the stereo and neaten up the wiring
7. New rear glass
8. decide on the gear box and diff ratio that I want to run
Wow, now I have written that down it is a fair bit. Hyybbrrriiiddddddddd!
