I believe Nick Micale would know a builder(s) in that area.

Depending on where you are you might try don wang(alkyv6 on the big board) at drw trans and auto. He answered a bunch of questions for me   so I would use him. I did find a bad thread but it was from 2001.

I'd still give him a call.

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

Well, if that is the case, I don't have a suggestion. Maybe the art Carr fellow at California performance transmissions.

You could always assemble one yourself. I hear Dave Husek has an excellent kit. And has a real good offering in a lock up converter.

I have talked with Dave in the past. Nice guy! I'd send him my trans if we weren't so far apart.

When you decide on your turbo...stay away from LU convertors. Been there...done that. Slip rates are too high unlocked...thi nk of it as a clutch in a standard transmission slipping...and not being able to transfer all the power to the rear wheels. Call Dusty at PTC and spec a race convertor with him. You won't miss LU on the street...trust me. If you need LU for gas mileage...then buy a Honda.

As far as fuel management goes...stick with something you can tune yourself. Don't get conned into these ones that are marketed as self learning.
