    Haven’t said much about the trans to this point so I’ll update that as well. Contrary to going with the typical 6 speed I opted for something a bit different/out of the box. Saleens came with tr3650’s but obviously they are weak in stock form. Pro force transmissions fixed that. This one is built to the same horsepower/torque ratings as a magnum 6060. Some may argue that the 6 speed is the only way but that’s silly. This will cruise in 5th at the same RPM.
    This is the Pro-Force Pro-C with REM polishing for gears 1-4 as well as the counter gear.
    bronze fork pads
    Gorilla 1-2 shift fork
    26 spline input shaft
    1-2 fork cryogen treated to be stiffer
    0.62 ratio fifth gear

    I finished the trans case in matte black to match all the suspension and Hotside/exhaust that will be under the car. I want the entire undercarriage to be stealth and clean. IMG_7750.JPG IMG_7751.JPG Also paired it with a prothane mount and fidanza lightened steel flywheel

    And here’s a quick look at why I was out of town the past couple days. I will not be fielding questions at this time ;) IMG_7752.JPG

    Thanks. Aside from the garbage one piece headlights it’s very nice. We’ll give that car it’s own thread but for now I wanted you all to know that we weren’t slacking. Just got “sidetracked” momentarily lol

    Legitimately speaking I’m over $35k in parts into this build, I just have to draw the line somewhere. $600 for tail lights is where I drew it. I love ambers as much as the next guy buy I felt I could still make an impactful and subtle addition to the rear of the car without spending that type of coin. I really like the light smoked look

    For anyone wanting to assemble their own three piece wheels I’ll give you a couple quick tips as I seal mine up so I can get the tires mounted.
    1) start by running a bead of silicon around each bolt hole
    2) while holding the 8mm 12 point bolt heads, tighten 1/2” nuts from the back in a star pattern across the entire wheel
    3) once all the bolts are tight run a thick bead of silicon around the outside edge of the wheel where the barrels and lips meet
    4) wait 2-3 days to let the silicon fully cure/shrink before mounting a tire IMG_7755.JPG IMG_7756.JPG IMG_7757.JPG

    Yeah the OEM headlights would be an improvement for sure.

    Great trans choice. I have actually researched this trans for both my ‘93 Cobra build and the future Cobra roadster build for my wife.
    People don’t recognize the potential of the 3650 gear set. I know Bob Hanson likes it as well and it will hold big power when built.
    I hope it works well for you buddy!

    My car needs a new trans. When I can afford one, Stan will be the man I buy a trans from; unless someone here has a 3650 for a great deal that doesn't whine and cry.

    Last texts are of that sweet notch, did I miss something else?
    I couldn’t respond to texts of a twin turbo reef blue notch due to blinding jealousy :)

    Forgelines are assembled, sealed and soon to be ready for rubber. Won’t lie, that’s a time consuming process no matter how many sets I’ve done IMG_7764.JPG IMG_7765.JPG
