Tight as possible without it shifting over 6k rpm. I killed the last one shifting between 6500-7200! Aw71 NO LIKE LONG REV! "Than it love you long time!" lol. ;)

Before i installed the 20T turbo.. I wired the Walbro255 right to its stock location (the 1995 wires are actually beefy enough to handle the extra draw) I also changed the fuel filter, new Bosch green giants and a 3" AMM (012?) and a set of custom chips tailored to it all and never looked back! One of the best upgrades you can make to this car with a big turbo. (Only choice really with the stock management system)

Eliminated any problems I was having with pinging after 20psi, running lean, "the tip in issue", etc.

Thing was such a beast ever since!

Nice project, but what about the line pressure of the tranny. What does that mean and how to achieve that, I'm always wondering about that :(

What length did you cut the bolt/inserts to? I've seen a couple threads on this, but they don't actually give a dimension.
I will need to do this when I drop the trans for the LH conversion

I just hold the bolts up to the spring( mark it) and cut it just shy of the length of the springs...I leave maybe a couple mm of play to make sure the valve body still seals up

I would replace all the seals, orings, gaskets, and plastic check balls while you are in there.

It would also make sense to go change clutch discs and piston seals, etc. There is no point in modifying the pressure to a clutch pack if there is a rolled seal, torn seal, worn bore.

Would you be willing to rip apart your old trans and post pics? I haven't been into one of these.
