    It's not an O2. They are grey connectors. 4 pins square or triangle shaped like Ashley said. Look at the replacement parts on rock auto to see. a 5 wire connector should be something fairly complicated or a jumper harness to something else. I can't think of anything with that many wires on my V.

    Mine never show ready because I don’t have rear 02’s. I've never seen all the monitors ready. I still pass.

    That is the schools systems corrective action for this equally stupid assignment two teachers had. https://www.tennessean.com/story/news/local/williamson/2019/03/07/tennessee-teachers-resign-franklin-sunset-middle-school-after-slavery-homework/1089902001/

    That's worse than his problem. He only has issues WOT at the track. You could very well need a syncro. What kind of clutch is in your car, single or dual disc? How well does the clutch disengage when sitting at a stop to get the trans into gear? What 1st gear ratio is your trans.

    I drove mine to work today for the first time with the "full size" front welds. It was like driving on stock fronts. The 18x7's with Michelin PSS's are maybe 6 lbs. heavier per side than the 18x5's with M/T sportsman fronts. They are still about a 10lb savings over the 19" stockers.

    My friends c6 has the carbon syncros and they don't help. He's on the second tr6060 and the first one got rebuild with carbon syncros and they didn't help then either.

    My friends c6 with the tr6060 is like you describe. If it hooks, it makes the 1-2 shift. If it spins, it won't shift. The synchro just isn't good enough to slow down a high engine acceleration rate when you spin. I know there's no sense in replacing those rear wheels. But forgestar look like they would be a perfect match for the stock fronts.

    Yep, not a cts V. I don't know anything about those.
  9. Yours is likely going to look radically different from mine just because of operating systems, converter, different trans etc. Instead, download his trans software tool and play with it. https://forum.hptuners.com/showthread.php?44953-Bluecat-Transmission-Table-Software
  10. Not sure, Probably 68-7000. It WOT shifted at 6800 before. It should be lower now. We couldn't make any WOT shifts on the street Saturday night, it was too cold to hook. I'll have to log it at the track and send him an email to get that perfected. He set me up with enough trans tune info and software that I can play with shifting. I fully intend to do that to maximize ET. Blower type. Mine makes 14-15 lbs. as soon as you hit the throttle. Yours increases with RPM. Don't get too excited over chassis dyno numbers from one shop to another.
  11. 4550 lbs. There’s only one way to find out.

    Congratulations Adam!
  13. Bluecat in Kentucky. The guy that makes the hp tuners software tools for VVE and the auto trans tuning. He doesn’t really take in customers off the street anymore. I had a friend of a friend hook me up with him. The guy is incredibly experienced and smart with the 6L80/90.
  14. That’s really hard to type out. It could probably be a small book. The gm 6,8,10 speed auto’s are clutch to clutch transmissions. Ie: they have to release a clutch then engage another to change gears. The timing of those two events it complicated. Fluid movement takes some time. So things have to start happening on the engage clutch before the release happens. Add on top of that different engine rpm acceleration rates and it gets complicated. Basically my first tune was just using increased pressure to make the fluid move quicker. The new tune is doing everything based on time. It’s anticipating the shift many hundreds of rpm in advance of the desired shift rpm. And adjusting the volumes of fluid entering and leaving clutch packs before shifts start. He also just changed some basic settings to make it feel more like a built th400. It shifts quicker in part throttle, but not harsh. Before it felt kinda slushy and lazy. No more rev matching on downhifts. You really don’t even feel downshifts anymore. Before I hated the downshifting.
