5-speed




Comments like that annoy me still, like can you not tell the difference between playful banter and actual beef? Lol.
So close to the 12's.

I would be on the lookout for a 6 speed.

There are a lot of people who get their feelings hurt really bad here, and have to go take it out other places. Youtube must be their safe space.

I'm so scared of the ratios, and it will be a $1200+ upgrade if I match it with the 3.63 R&P When this engine gives up maybe I'll go to a 6-speed and a BP4W at the same time. These are the things that keep me up at night.

I run a 6 speed with a 4.10 rear end. I honestly just start in 2nd and treat it like a 5 speed. I have a 3.63 R&P that I need to get installed.

Technically no. You can use the VVTuner box. But really you should just upgrade to MS3.

Then setup up launch control with traction control to get your into the 12's.

Yep, LC+FFS and starting in 2nd would definitely get you into the 12's

interdasting ideaar, and very effective in road racing and auto-x, but I have yet to see TC work properly in a drag racing application

Even on fancy modern cars with really powerful ecu's, best times are usually achieved with TC off

This guy ran faster with MS3 TC then without it. Scott Clark has tuned several drag cars using MS3 TC and has had very good success with it.
