    Engine out. It has a Kennedy engineering stage 2 on it now.

    Its up to Dan.  The rev6 street has a lighter pedal feel for sure?

    KEP Stage 1 is $100 pressure plate..but we risk slipping the clutch, and its still pretty stiff. DSCF1115DSCF1119DSCF1117

    I have the same motto as Scott, buy once, cry once.  If Scott and others have had good success, I can get past the price tag so it drives like a “Mercedes.”  I did ask a buddy on the left coast about the Rev 6 and he said to pass.  He has a similar turbo setup as I do and the Rev 6 lasted less than a month in his car before he pulled it.  I don’t know the issues he encountered, but I will ask him.  Battery upgrade looks great!

    welcome back Dan…

    I say put a stage one and a 4 puck on it…. 😎  and make sure the clutch tube isn’t trying to flex,, and not too much, if any, bow in the bowden tube.. 😎  maybe a longer arm on the trans??

    I can’t get over that awesome exhaust system!!!!!

    The harder I work, the better I feel, sorta 😎

    Re-sealing the axle tubes today. It looked like the leak was coming from the seals that were installed dry.

    Transaxle all sealed and re-filled. We’ll see if it leaks now.

    Dan, you said you had a new alternator in your possession… is it a Bosch unit?

    My next steps are to fit the idle air control motor to the back of the fan shroud, plumb some hoses, check the harness lengths, then install the harness into the car.

    Did you see the water/methanol injection from CB Performance? Is that something we need? The ecu has control capabilities…. Even though I’m all about keeping things simple.

    The Rev 6 with the street discs is great Dan. Pedal pressure is less than stock. Was your friend drag racing it? Is he in Ohio? I would not do a 4 puck for the street John. Way too much chatter. Stage 2 and good Daiken would be better but might not hold all the power. You do not want to be taking this engine in and out multiple times to get it right. Dan you can come down and drive my Ghia and see what you think.

    I had a 4 puck/stag2 in my diamond green oval…. it sucked, on/off switch and tons of chatter, they meant to be side stepped haha.

    local drag racer here tried a RLR setup and had bunch of issues but that was right at intro of that system…..heard they worked out kinks. I do really like the theory, saves parts but hooks the fuck up.

    I have a stage 2 and copperhead from ACE (Blackline racing) holds 230ish hp against my extremely abusive driving style haha

    I’m taking a couple week break on this project to wait for parts.

    …and finish the 52 single cab restoration we are doing.

    I spoke to my buddy on the West coast.  He had one of the first Rev 6 units, non-street and they seemed to have issues.  The later versions look to be good to go.  Franz is going to reach out to Ron L. to get the right setup on order.

    Scott, thanks for the offer to come visit you and drive your Rev 6 equipped Ghia!  I may take you up on your offer to visit one of these days.
