Just curious, I know Kanine21 has the PFS Stage I..anyone else on .net go with it??

For those of us w/ 5spds that can't afford tranny swaps, it seems like a great option.
I figure it's either the PFS Stage I, Vortech, Powerdyne, TBKO's S/C, TBKO's turbo at 7psi, SRT, or PHR/Toyomoto's new S/Cs...

btw, Kane - any updates you'd like to share? :D

I think any kit that is putting up over 300rwhp on a 5 spd runs the risk of blowing the tranny. But depending on how "spirited" you drive it.

Mine is still strong although my new tranny is in the mail... 8)

Updates? haha... extremely soon!!

Got my HKS cam gear yesterday, PFS sent out my PFS SS 3" Turbo exhaust and Wideband setup today. Will have it on next week. Hope to dyno on the 1st. Not sure if I'll have time though, cause I'm leaving for San Joser on the 2nd, workin on the race car a little bit, then we're caravaning to VEGAS!! woo hoo!

If I don't have time to dyno before Vegas, I will shortly after, maybe the weekend after I get back.

I'll keep you updated,

Kane

I'm not trying to be a smartass, but if you look on the 2nd page you would see that he did post his specs.
i don't understand why he didn't just post it in the first place. :-?
boo-hoo captain jack, i was having problem loading up some pix, and i try to post them the next day, but results in a page behind the "first place". :wink:

Basically whenever you floor it long enough to where the car should shift into the next gear, such as 0-60 and 1/4, or just jumping on the freeway.

Bottom line: You'll need a valve body upgrade for strong shifting when it's supposed to shift when flooring it. Otherwise you'll bounce off the rev limiter till you back off the throttle.

Um Kane,
OvErKiLL has a manual tranny as his sig suggests, you were referring to the auto tranny.
