It is the shift control description for 6L90 transmissions. My goal is a daily driver, quick 0-60 mph times, and economical gas mileage. Magnumdust - I appreciate you defending the guy, but you don't have to throw insults at the 3G hemi while doing so. For climbing and descending grades while towing, having a lighter tranny than the 4L80E with extra gears and tow-haul capability is a win-win-win to me. Watched a hot rod vid on youtube the other day where they made around 600 hp using a stock bottom end 5. As for the 727, he was saying if the car will be a daily driver the 6. I think the new boxes are also more efficient and have less losses through the gears, but I'd agree that it's likely not worth the effort to make one work for the limited gain you might see.
Another factor that may increasingly enter the mix is electrical drivetrains. The transmission will resort back to regular automatic shifting conditions. He spent some time getting it reliable and drivable again, and the 383 Magnum, four-speed, Dana-rearend—equipped coupe was his ride for the last two years of high school. Patent 636811 B1 is also interesting. Contributors Thanks to Rick Boiros and Joseph Heinrich for some of the information that got this article rolling a long-long time ago. Procharger intercooled centrifugal kits supposedly have the best power output with stock internals 200hp+ gain , but really, anything over 6-7psi is a gamble without the drop-in piston upgrade from Arrington.
Yeah, computers tend to be the issue nowadays. If you have a 4X4, the lowest you can now go with a 9. Like the guy said before with enough money you can do it but I truly don't think you know what you might be getting yourself into. It was like a whole new animal and Larry fell in love with it all over again and started driving it a lot more. I'd actually prefer a G56 as it is having a good production run with the Cummins. So many systems are starting to get tied together into one computer that's it's hard to transplant a powertrain with independent control. Would be an interesting way to address the low ground clearance issue, assuming you can find a spot for the fluid tank.
To say this transformed the Challenger would be an understatement. So cannot fault Mercedes for that one and chalk it up to self inflicted wounds of owner ego. Despite 45 years of difference, Larry Rose managed to make the swap look factory. Using the engine to rev match makes the shift faster. Shortly thereafter, though, Larry went away to college and the Challenger went into storage for a few years. When you pull it back to move into gear, the shifter does not stay in place — instead returning back to the middle position. I know many see the wow factor, but in reality thats about where it would end as this kind of swap would never pay for itself to 99% of the drivers out there.
Figured it would be too much work to make it happen. You might be able to get a foam mock-up version of one cheap. Modern Muscle has a computer to control the new motor, but I don't know if they can control that tranny? I appreciate the input to the question. Rated to handle up to 750 horsepower. Impact on emissions: completely unknown to me. I've read a few articles about General Mayhem. Now confirmed working for the 8L90 too! Maybe I should pull the motor out of my Jeep.
Its a simple matter of fact. The eight speed is brand new so I think you might have to wait. Starting to think I am in a little too deep. If you want to do it to 'save money', know going in that probably won't be the case. A transmission will include major internal modifications and upgrades designed to make it both stronger and more durable. If you take the center of the crankshaft and measure to the bottom of the engine oil pan then measure the center of the transmission to the bottom of the transmission oil pan.
The 8 speed trans came about to help engines with a narrow power band, and to take better advantage of rear gears like 3. On the outside the Wrangler has Smittybilt front bumper, Genright rear bumper and aluminum fender flares, Hard Rock Edition hood, and Rigid Industries front light bar. The transmission has a range of 221 lb-ft to a massive 738 lb-ft, but most applications land between 330 and 550 lb-ft. By continuing to browse our site you agree to our use of data and cookies. Most of the extra gears in transmissions are between existing ratios to keep the engine closer to the highest efficiency point.
Man, this stuff is making my head spin lol. Everything else they're either quite even or the Hemi is triumphant. Maybe there just isn't enough interest to make the seemingly impossible, possible. For example, to cool the intake air and maximize density, a 250-watt thermostatically controlled electric pump moves 45 liters of coolant per minute through two intercoolers built into the flanks of the supercharger and two radiators positioned at the front of the car. You probably daydreamed about that car and wondered why on earth anyone would be so callous to treat it like that. I am going to convert over to a manual which is tow-haul capable right out of the crate Only outstanding question is whether it will have 5 or 6 gears.
Wonder when they will support the Supercharged 6. As for the wiring here's where I am running into problems. No crank in reverse or drive gears. As of right now the 8 speed can not even be tuned in the new cars yet so until that can happen I do not even think it is worth investing any time or money to see if it can be done. The other biggie that really kills most of the new wonders from the oem is the fact that the aftermarket would be working on small volume, and that makes say a stand alone controller box for this trans to work in a non oem setting very pricey. I've been doing some transmission research and think this swap would be awesome. This allows you to easily see what gear you're in when you're tap shifting with our tap shift switch box, or floor mounted tap shifter! Am not really fond of either and just might re-gear to 3.
