I couldn't even begin to tell you what the end cost will be. I've spent so much trying to perfect this thing in ways that wouldn't need to be done on future conversions. Assuming these next few weeks go well, I do have the next 2 cars lined up to have the conversion and I'll be able to get the machining and labor costs down significantly now that we know what we're doing.Do you have an order of magnitude idea of cost? I need to start saving up
Curious, are you going to take this opportunity to turn the wick up on your V8?
It's amazing. Words literally cannot describe. The car has been given new life, and it feels like this is what should have been done in the first place. As most everyone has said, the gearbox has always been the weak point of these cars, and its not anymore. It shifts a lot smoother and you can put it in first and take your foot off the gas and it won’t stall. You don’t have to keep feathering the clutch in traffic. 2nd gear feels like first used to feel. I haven't driven it fast enough to really tell what 6th will do but I did at least put it in 6th at lower rpm and it felt just fine. All gears are smoother and tighter than before.How do those ratios work with the V8, I feel sure they are very nice
