seriously... is this snow going to leave or what? On a side note, thinking about a stall... 2600-2800 Coan.
dude, I recently got a chance to drive/ride in one of the newly built cars @ Rick's running the 2800-3000 COAN and the driveability was remarkable! It was very tight and felt nearly stock when just cruising nicely, then a hit on the gas and it would flash instantly and rip down the road! I was very impressed!

They are pretty pricey though...

Stall and gears? Is that too much?

Yeah all the choices are confusing... Rick highly recommends the Coan and yes, they are pricey though.

Soon your car is never going to leave the garage!

You'd be awfully quick with a stall and gears. Wonder what your mpg would drop to..

#5 is alive. I was wondering why I wasn't getting any emails from the board.

MPG with stall isn't a killer, unless all you drive is city.

Street traction with a stall, I don't think it can be had. That is my reasoning so far for not getting one. Someday maybe.

Me too, and I would want to run a good size tranny coler which would cost more $. I figure get a stall and get a bigger cam for more mid to high HP, that way I can handle giving up some down low to protect the tires from spinning.

its a ****hole down here with all the sand on the roads and still snow on some side streets. They are terrible at clearing snow in this town, they want the drivers to pack it down then they sprinkle dirt over it LOL.
