  • October 09 2018, 02:50:20 AM Scoobum: how good is Johnny Manziel ih he has an o-line that protects him...Matt of the best of all time breaks it down...[link]
  • October 09 2018, 07:14:32 AM TexasT: Johnny football looked pretty solid in those highlights. That #19 sure can catch or at least he can in the highlights. Never heard of Matt Dunnigan
  • October 09 2018, 08:22:18 AM daveismissing: formwer QB: CFL Hall of Fame , Louisiana Tech Hall of Fame
  • October 09 2018, 08:25:48 AM daveismissing: Took over from Warren Moon when be went back to Houston

  • October 09 2018, 12:03:44 PM TexasT: [link]  Man, I might have to get me a Mustang. Single turbo goes 9.27 there at BG  Ive been studying up on these 6r80 transmissions. They are pretty solid.
  • October 09 2018, 01:00:31 PM nocooler: The 6r80 is a stout piece. I always found it funny that my ecoboost truck with that trans would hit the limiter in 3rd.
  • October 09 2018, 03:29:16 PM TexasT: [link] then as the six speed takes hold the ten is introduced.
  • October 09 2018, 03:31:05 PM TexasT: One thing I found interesting about the 6r80 is that it doesnt have a band. All frictions and steels to control the planetaries. And it has a cool multiple element palnetary down in there I thought was real cool.
  • October 09 2018, 03:32:57 PM TexasT: Those 6r80 apparently need about a Grand worth of upgrades about 700 hp, a set of exedy clutches and a billet intermediate shaft at about $500 each plus install.
  • October 09 2018, 03:33:41 PM TexasT: [link] clutches [link] billet shaft.
  • October 09 2018, 05:15:57 PM TexasT: You could probably get that thing to shift instead of hitting the rev limited with a new tune.
  • October 09 2018, 06:09:42 PM nocooler: Speed limiter. A tune would have fixed that too
  • October 09 2018, 06:56:18 PM TexasT: Ive been listening to the podcasts  and I am way behind on this stuff. Ive been looking for a place to download this tuner studio software so I can look at it and see what it does. [link] this scott clark character seems to know a few things.
  • October 09 2018, 09:52:30 PM good2win22: Here's your link Rich. [link]
  • October 09 2018, 09:53:34 PM good2win22: He certainly does talk a lot. Sometimes I yell at the radio for him to stop interrupting other folks
  • October 10 2018, 06:26:10 AM TexasT: cool, ill check it out.
  • October 11 2018, 09:51:56 AM gusszgs: Is there a specific number stamped on the 86/87 TR ECU?
  • October 11 2018, 10:10:57 AM Steve Wood: Yes
  • October 11 2018, 11:07:44 AM gusszgs: Thanks Steve is there a specific number that identifies the computer? Or a series of numerals to look for?
  • October 11 2018, 11:41:09 AM Steve Wood: yeah, it needs a label on the ecm that says 1227148     It came in a few other cars as well as the TR so it should not be too hard to find...Ebay and others have them
  • October 11 2018, 02:36:52 PM daveismissing: usually on a white paper label IIRC
  • October 11 2018, 04:14:05 PM gusszgs: Thanks guys appreciate it
  • October 11 2018, 04:20:00 PM xpander343: Anyone have any luck with the reman ECU's?  I see them on rockauto
  • October 11 2018, 10:22:45 PM daveismissing: Ask Highway Stars, I think theirs are as well
  • October 12 2018, 08:46:32 PM nocooler: Looks like a good deal for someone. [link]
  • October 12 2018, 11:07:53 PM Steve Wood: Not a bad price for the dp
  • October 16 2018, 03:27:10 PM Tcorgn6: Anyone  heading to Barrett Jackson ARIZONA January 2019 ?
