    Yup, KB 2.2, SBTB, 4# lower are the big things, and a little work on the SRA. Also gotta have the Transmission fixed...had nothing but problems going with this damn T56. And Schropp Tuning, apparently they tune ALOT of American muscle cars including terminators. I talked to the guy who runs it and I feel pretty comfortable with him. I plan on installing the lower and KB myself and getting a mail tune just to get up there and drop it off!

    I just wish I would get the hell home to get this started lol!

    Also I have a RPM built T56 and it has been great so far. Do you know if they work on LSX car's ? I need to get forged piston's & rods once I get there.

    I know they work on Vettes, and in one of their pics (the last one actually) I can see ONE GTO lol. Here's a link to their site in english. Peter seems like a good guy who knows his shit. Just remember everythings in Euro's so its alittle bit more pricey since our dollar sucks balls!

    SCHROPP Fahrzeugtechnik und Tuning in Schönaich / Böblingen

    And If this tranny goes to shit on me again I think I'm going to swap to a damn T56 Magnum and call it a day, I'm sick of the same shit happening over and over!

    I wouldnt mind but I want to wait untill I get back to the states for good. And nah my clutch is only a 10 spline, its not the clutch its the damn tranny. Shift pads and fork went out the first time. 3000 miles later its done the same thing. Started locking up in 3rd, now it grinds like a bitch lol. I just want it fixed and done with!

    I hate the stock t-56. I had mine rebuilt a month after i bought the car, then again it started making weird noises and acting up some 2 years later. A few months before i came to the UK. So they just ordered a supposdly built up t56 from tremac. I don't know how well its built but i haven't had any issues. I def get a upgraded/built t56 and stay away from the stock one.

    He said he wants you my friend!! :D

    Are you the original owner of the car? I know that it took me 3 years to break my T56. I blame John3883 somewhat.. it was when he was in the car when it first started grinding 3rd :lol1: Anyway's I know the new TR6060 is supposed to be very strong if you can get one.
