    Re: TCM Reverse Engineering Project

    I didn't think the PCS controller was #1 available any longer, and #2 supported the 41TE any longer?

    As for the shift timing, I was thinking that the logic to complete the shift would interpolate...

    Re: TCM Reverse Engineering Project

    My question is why does the timing HAVE to be different for different throttle positions? For a performance application, if it shifts harsh, who cares? It's also my argument for why the adaptives can...

    You sure he had *40* passes? I thought it was like, 4 real passes before a mistake ended it all? It's been years, and I admit I haven't gone back to read the history.

    Yes, the 604/41TE has a much...

    Racer Steve! I couldn't remember his name! Thank you!

    Yes, things *can* be upgraded. Again, cost/effort versus benefit.

    I am making basically *1* more go with the 2.2/2.5, and I still want to build a 3.0 V6, but after that...I am done with these cars...

    Suspension Re: ISO AWD rear diff/axle setup

    Yeah, I was conversing with him on and off about it. Haven't heard or seen much in a while, either. He was trying to make it so the PTU was a direct bolt-on using this adapter plate. As it is, it...

    Re: TCM Reverse Engineering Project

    To a point, yes. However, most are engine swapping to the 2.4 (and for very good reasons), and there's options for strong manual and dog box transmissions. The OD in the A604 can't be used with any...

    Re: Interchangable LSD

    Right, that's kinda been my point. Yes, somebody did do it. I remember that the machinist complained about how hard the steel was, so it was a PITA to cut out.

    Re: Interchangable LSD

    According to that, 3.77 was the only option besides 3.85 in '92, which was already established. That doesn't solve the issue IF a person were want to keep the 3.85FD.

    I do NOT want to take apart...

    Re: Interchangable LSD

    It's an NOS A568 (0-miles), and an '89 A555 that I have that I'd try to get a Quaife for.

    How would the A420/T350 diff work in a '92 A568? They have the same solid ring gear with left side...

    Nope. To me, any progress here is about 20 YEARS too late. I think it's cool. It would have been nice to have back in the day, but anymore...not worth the effort.

    Ah, ok. I thought you'd figured out something I wasn't aware of. Because it's a van, it would be kinds hard to use the Pacifica PTU. That was my solution for AWD with a CB engine. Haven't tried it...

    Suspension Re: ISO AWD rear diff/axle setup

    Are you still running the common block 2.5 or is it a 2.4 swap? Reason I ask is if it is the 2.5, what are you doing to solve the interference issue with the PTU and the block?

    Re: Interchangable LSD

    The vans got a unique gearset in that 1st was a lower ration (higher numerically). Also, even though they were A555/A568 with a 3.85 FD, they had 2-pinion diffs. Now, it's been a while since I've...

    Re: Interchangable LSD

    Yeah, I think you are right. I found one in a 2nd gen van once (couldn't yank it at the time...sucky.) All V6's 91-up also got the 3.77. If anyone guts one for the gearset I am game for the case!

    Partly, yes, but I think most just have this misconception that the "lesser" transmissions aren't as durable. The gearing of the 3.85 transmissions isn't all that great, honestly. Too low for a good...

    Re: ATI Superdamper-is it worth the money?

    For only 350hp I'd say get a NEW OEM unit and be done. If you were going to go for big power and go racing...then the super damper has advantages over the stock unit.

    Re: Interchangable LSD

    So why would they tell a company a different story? Doesn't make sense. I will inquire, too, because I need one for an A568 and I don't want to make a hybrid transmission out of it to run an LSD.
