    Nostalgic Air Brackets and Turbo

    I think you're right. The 6.2 will never be capable of hurting a well built 700R4. Both of my trucks have 205s and it's pretty easy to mate them using a spacer so that pushed me in that direction. I also really like being able to dial in shift points and firmness with a click of a button. But I...

    Nostalgic Air Brackets and Turbo

    I want to drive one with a 700R4. I know strength wise it's a downgrade but on paper it's great. Has good ratio spreads, low first, tall OD, lockup converter, and it's all hydraulic. For a CUCV that's a great match. In my mind I always want the beef but in reality when is my CUCV going to be...

    I went with a 4L80. I was dreading the tall ratio splits of the NV4500 and was looking for what you have but they are discontinued and nowhere to be found used. I imagine as far as a manual goes you have the best of all worlds. Super granny low, tall overdrive, and lots of gears in between. The...

    Nice Nice Engine top end work will be a pain either requiring compressor to be pulled and flopped over or line removal. Just something to think about. Nothing better then sitting in a boiling hot CUCV middle of July with your leg melting to the school bus leather seat cover. But the AC is...

    I was thinking of the Sidewinder. The factory turbo manifold puts the turbo more in the middle of the cylinder head right? Sent from my SM-T380 using Tapatalk

    I doubt the turbo will be happy with the big honking J180 mount alternators. Thats the M1010 setup. Thats the best way to get AC whether 12 or 24v. This is opinion but I would go 12v and use the 6.5 setup. It works with the turbo. The alternator is a newer style, yiu get a Sanden style...
