Rcr yeah that would make me very happy. Lol. They only covered the first one. The rest we have had to buy and do the labor. We are getting pretty efficient at it. Lol. In 2017 we did the rearend in may then the trans blew the next week. Lol so we had to wait til july for the new one. Then that one blew in october and we got the new one in november and installed it. I wasnt happy about those long i tell you what has helped us learn the car. We have done most of our own mods too...except the nitrous spray bars installed in the blower and the blower porting and the tuning. We are still old school. Lol. The nova is our level of jk.
I dont really think anyone will make the 8l90 much better because of the success of the 10 speeds. I know we have put ours through some extreme conditions. I still cant believe the motor has held up so well. That many passes at that power level on a stock motor. The only thing we have had off motor is the blower when it was sent to nitrous outlet and jokerz performance. That says a lot about the lt4. We have been at 800-900whp and wtq since beginning of 2016...a lot of hard driving on road course and dragstrip. The last pass it ran the lingenfelter timing retard box didnt retard any and was supposed to retard 5°. ...and the tuner had it on kill timing wise. It melted tips off 6 plugs with a 180 nitrous shot...and still ran (but threw a random misfire code. Lol. Ya think? Lol). The very next pass was when the trans blew this last time. That pass was a 10.12 and it slipped second and third gears bad. Ugh
Hoping to take it to the colorado mile this year and see what it can do with room to stretch.
