    Yeah but this would also be a couple of hundred kg lighter which will make for an easier life for the 4l box

    It's also cool (in my mind), sick of you sheeple

    Nice Chuck,will be fun in the rain.

    Should be 4l65 if vz 6l...basically earlier box with hotted up bits,just make sure got big ass cooler & leave stock stally it should love you long time.
    an easy fix is get a mate to drive in front of you at 60 then 80 then 100 and mark in on your speedo with some liquid paper.

    Just to add to that.
    Donít make more than 280rwkw on a stock 65e. I killed my 2nd 65e in about 3 months at 286rwkw. My no expense spared $6k billet everything 4L65e shat itís lunch after 20 runs and 3 months with 300 and bit rwkw.

    Picked it up today



    40+ degrees, busy traffic, air con blasting, no problems. I love conversions done right. The owner/builder did an identical conversion to a VN with a "mild road tune" and it made 300rwhp which feels about right for this

    Yeah it's a bit over muffled at the moment. Might ditch the back muffler and lsxr intake, I'll be guided by Dale

    Yeah IRS

    Probably got 240-250rwkw with tune,basic mods they'll easily go higher.

    What exhaust is on it?

    Auto v8 cars with exhaust drone will be annoying & stockers usually sound worse without rear resonator...try it for fun anyway.
    an easy fix is get a mate to drive in front of you at 60 then 80 then 100 and mark in on your speedo with some liquid paper.

    It ain't making that at the moment. I reckon 220, maybe 225

    It's got a single 3" with a centre and rear muffler

    I'd like to get it into the low 12's/high 11's without 4.11's or a 6000 stall

    One thing to consider is if you go to a shorter gear it will be less strain on the box. The little bit I've read about 700s etc is the massive ratio drop from 1st to 2nd puts massive load on the clutches and starts to wreck shit. You just need to figure out what's a good compromise of fasts vs cruising rpm but I reckon a 3.7 or 3.9 would still be ok
