I'm running a billet circle d converter I believe the spec is 3200-3500, I could be wrong. Also I did the converter swap in about 1.5 hours. Get a super long trans extension and wobble sockets and it's cake. Also when I have removed the engine, I never take the trans out. With the status mounts and a floor jack on the trans it centers itself. I can change these lsx 240 longblocks out in around 4 hours if that

It may be a dog if you do with that converter. Might be ok since the car is not heavy though.

So impressions on the ms3 goldbox, it's just like driving a stock computer car now, mileage went from single digits up to about 20 on the freeway. I think the next order of business is a gear change on the car and I'll be done for the most part, possibly swap in the nice shiny s369 I have but at this point I want to dial everything in first and see how far this turbo can carry me. It's very drivable now and it has instant boost with the small cam and turbo. I need to re verify timing and get the correct offset so I know exactly where the timing is at but right now it's safe

Sequential is so much better than batch fire. Did you use the same wiring harness and just swapped boxes?

Awesome. You really should get traction control working. I know burnouts are cool, but so is traction.

I have a set of et streets I'll use when the time comes but for right now I like it alot, I built this car basically as a fun cruiser that you can take to the track whenever and do massive burnouts on the street whenever you feel like it

Same, that's why traction control is on a switch. On in snow or at the track, off when I want to do a burnout.

I'll see, I'm really just enjoying the car atm, maybe it will get hooked up, I know from what I read none of the turbo ls guys use it, they just get meat that hooks. We will see, I am getting some fallen azenis tures for the rear and we will see if that helps on the street

Spilled coffee all over yourself when I drove it at Davis lol

Luckily it was on me and not the recaros. Also this car is great cause you can do burnouts right in front of cops and not get pulled over. Lol

Azenis are sticky for street tires, but you won't have a problem blowing them off in a launch. Have fun experimenting though!

They were on sale so I thought what the hell. I have econobox tires on the rear now and it's super sketchy

This was the big one, 2 cops at the end of the street that I didn't see. The whole inside of the car was full of smoke and it was pouring smoke down the street

Neat work on the car!

Local cops would kill me for such things!
Last time brownie accidentally slid in a roundabout, I immediately got pulled over.

Yea, that's my fear, if it comes down to it and the car actually can leave well I may just get a longer set of shocks and Jack the back end up so I can run a bigger tire, but we will see.
