You need to put a shooting bench on the front porch when it's done!

Hope to have one on the car at Las Vegas ! I have 6 basically built ! just a matter of finding the right orifice sizing for the 2-3 shift ! too small you get shift overlap , to large you get a fair on the shift ! and I'm fussy ! I won't sell one until it's Perfect!! The VB's will be a complete kit with a modified sonnax servo. larger piston apply and different servo lever , pulling the trans off the dyno is time consuming! If you have a spare week come up and I'll put you to work testing!! I will not let a half baked part out of my shop! PS you can have a Free one then! and know it works !
