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.JbParticipantDecember 1, 2019 at 8:26 pmPost count: 615
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 hahaFranzKeymasterDecember 5, 2019 at 9:07 amPost count: 3460
I’m taking a couple week break on this project to wait for parts.

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.Scott SainParticipantDecember 9, 2019 at 2:42 pmPost count: 264

I haven’t had much luck finding nice door glass this machine. I am thinking about getting new stuff.Pat KKeymasterFebruary 17, 2020 at 10:54 amPost count: 1304
I started loving on this one Friday.
Installed the new 90 amp chrome alternator. Also started loosely fitting the new fuel injection wiring harness.
Saturday started out seeing where I could squeeze in the IAC (left side), and the single boost unit (blue guy).
Ran and secured wiring first. Ran what vacuum lines we had. 10 pounds of mess organized into a 5 pound space.
Placed an order this morning for a air intake temp sensor from CB performance that we didn’t have. Also ordered some fittings and heat shield for the vac lines from Summit racing.
We will build it if it comes.Pat KKeymasterFebruary 19, 2020 at 1:51 pmPost count: 1304
I’ve been checking items off Dans list the last couple days.
Body trim was a little loose and could slide around. Pulled trim, sanded and buffed any scratches.
Made a small adjustment to the rolled lip on the back of the trim at each clip to secure them. Back together and no more movement.
Installed your batt tracker.
Getting the ebrake boot back under the carpet was a test in patience. Ebrake adjusted also.
Popped out the drivers rear qtr window and removed the damaged b-pillar upholstery. Cleaned off all of the old glue. Ready for the new piece you sent.
Ordered these clips for WW to secure your rubber mats . Going to use panel bond to install them so there won’t be any paint repair needed to the bottom side of the pan. http://www.wolfsburgwest.com/cart/DetailsList.cfm?ID=111701495
Going to stop the running board trim from rattling and sliding around by cutting some rubber to go under each clip. New clips on the way.
We will build it if it comes.Pat KKeymasterFebruary 21, 2020 at 12:56 pmPost count: 1304
Fresh b pillar upholstery installed and qtr window back in.
Swapped out the early style clutch operating shaft for a late-model shaft due to the RLR rev6 clutch. Also ordered this bearing and shaft kit from RLR.
Installed new fittings and vac lines.
Used this heat protection on the vac lines and O2 sensor wiring that run close to the exhaust.
Springs on the inside of vac lines so the don’t collapse were bent.
Rev6 clutch installed. End play in spec.
We will build it if it comes.dan.mastroParticipantFebruary 24, 2020 at 8:30 pmPost count: 14
Everything is looking great! I saw a little bit of blue on the intake. CB Performance was supposed to send black to replace the blue pieces. Hopefully, they are in the shipment.

Yeah yeah, just mock-up. Have the new black ones in the box.
Did you say you wanted a cb performance alt. pulley?
