    Warning - It's about a 23 minute video! LOL.
    But it captures a recap of the build, my 1st start up, the dyno session, and my drive around and overall check of the car.
    If you watch it all, then enjoy! Thanks!

    Awesome build- when you were dyno testing the car you stated 5th gear , most 6r80 cars get dynoed in 4th gear. or less depending on the rear gear of the car. (mine gets dynoed in 3rd)
    Love the car, great job on the build.

    LOL. That is strange. I use a computer and not my phone (tapatalk) so I don't see any ads.

    I didn't talk about it, but I had to set my idle much higher than I liked to around 1100.
    This was necessary as when I put the car into gear, it tries to cut off.
    I have a Circle D 3B converter (5 disc) lockup in the car from my TTSaleen. This clutch pack is dragging and causing it to load the car at idle and pull the engine down. If I let off the brake, the car would drive off at idle, which it should not do.
    I talked to Circle D today and they recommended for this power combo to convert to a 3 disc lockup and it should resolve the draggin at idle problem.
    This will allow me to reset the idle back to a lower rpm (around 900-1000) and get the chop-chop back.

    Yeah I normally dyno it in 4th or 5th depending if I'm simulating a 1/8th or 1/4 mile run. It has 3.73 gears and a 26.5" tall tire and we spin it just over 7k.

    Thanks. Yes I've been on SVTP since November 2000 when I joined I owned a red 2000 Ford Lightning truck - hence my screen name. If only I could get my name changed to TTSALEEN on here would be cool..............

    I was going to ask you about the idle. The rumpy lope sounds cool, but there's that fine line where, like you said, the engine wants to cut out. Totally understand you saying you had to increase the idle a bit to keep the beast alive when you put it in gear.

    It's such a pain to have to pull this car back down just to get the converter back out! But that is clearly what I need to do next so it will idle properly when in gear. Outside of that, the driveability is fine but in reality at this power level I don't need a 5 disc lockup. Haha.
