Winter, whats that? We ride our harleys year round down here. There is no time for winter in south Mississippi lol. I have thought about it though, but I think Im going to pass on the tfs heads. I am currently working with a good machinist friend of mine and he is developing a way to put a 1.9" intake valve in a npi head. So when its all said and done, I might end up with npi heads back on this thing.

Watch out for that compression ratio, flat tops and 38cc would have you mid-highish 13's (13.7:1). Just make sure you have at least 93 octane around you all the time and you know someone that can dyno tune really well. Youre success will be in your tune.

Track day was yesterday. Only made 2 passes. First pass, the transmission didnt want to shift at 7500 rpm so I missed 2nd gear. Got back in it and ran a 13.8. Next pass got a decent launch, (60' was still only 1.9) made it 1-3 just fine went 3-4 and my pass was finished......

Oh yeah, it ran a 13.4 on the second pass with a blown up clutch.

Already breakin' stuff, eh? What kind of clutch is that anyway? Just so the rest of us can avoid buying one; as fresh as that appears you definitely didn't get the use and abuse it should have endured.

And please don't say Exedy Mach 400, lol.

And keep us posted on those NPI heads. I have read somewhere, maybe over on MHS's site, that NPI heads can be made to flow better than worked PI heads.

I ordered that clutch almost 4 years ago and never got to use it until now. Im pretty sure it was a ram clutch though. It definitely didnt get the abuse that it should have. I mena hell, the pressure plate and flywheel dont have any kind of heat spots. Only got 2k miles out of it.

Ill definitely keep it updated. My friend hasnt been doing a whole lot with the npi heads lately but its still in the works. Just have to get time to do it all, you know?

My buddy has a new 6 puck clutch that he is going to give me for the time being. Im pretty set on going back to an auto so Im not going to put any more money into the setup than I absolutely have to.

I was going to suggest auto but wasn't sure if you were dead set on the manual.

I wish I had a stalled auto. One of these days.

My dad has a C4 (I know it's a 3 speed) in the basement that I could potentially use, would need some rebuilding and a bell housing. I would need to go to a taller gear though 3.55 or so to be even moderately street friendly but it would be a great strip setup.

My goal the entire time has been to build my aluminum block with a bad ass 4r70w behind it. The only reason I didnt go back auto to start with was because I didnt know how to electronically control it since I went megasquirt. I found out microsquirt will control our transmissions and will CAN Bus communicate with my megasquirt so I will tune everything through the same port. Its definitely in the works right now. I havent quite decided on clutch yet but Ill need to get the car back together today because I need my lift to be open tomorrow.


As for your setup, I would try to stay away from the c4. Those transmissions werent setup to run with engines like ours. Ive known a couple guys to run c4's, one of them was a turbo, 5.4 swap, 96 gt and he hated the c4. Only ran it for a month and pulled it back out in favor of the t45. Then he went with a 4r70 and manual valve body and loved it.

The gearing is definitely not ideal for a mod motor, especially for an N/A mod motor but I figured I have it. In all reality, I would need a 4r70 OR see about running an 05-10 Auto if it could work with my computer (which I doubt it would). I don't see myself ever having another daily anytime soon so the stang is it and it needs to be streetable.
