Clampy is running a T56 behind his, and Pyoray has a Mal Wood 6 speed following his EL XR6T. I don't think either of them would be cheap options (I think Pyoray's one is about 8k).


I seem to remember 11k?

Youmay be pushing the limits of the T5, but see how it goes, then go from there if she does give up the ghost.

if T5 gives up the ghost, you better have some spare coinage, since the only option is a box upgrade... im trying to perform a R154 conversion on mine, still looking at $2K+, or a tremec for $5K+

Both places can tell you exactly the way to do it and how much.

Make sure you post info on how you go with the R154, they seem to be a fairly solid box behind some big power soarers so should be right for the falcon.

I remember hearing that he had to choose between a bunch of new gear for the house, and the charger, and as in the casinos, house always wins. :lol:

Very well put Kilma!

TickXR - I have decided to go with the Kenne Bell unit. It's just going to have to sit on the back-burner until I've finished my house. Terry at BPT has fitted one into his car and from what he tells me, it works really well. All the torque you want from about 1800rpm. You don't need to wait for it to wind up like the centrifugal units.

It'd probably be easier to go for a vortech and I know that if I got one I'd be stoked with the results, but I like to be a little different and am in lust with all that low-down torque!
