    I know they got behind their original schedule, but as long as their other testers are having good luck I think it would be soon. I think things worked out good with my car having the aftermarket converter. They really needed that info so they could add that selection to the settings menu. Karl knew what was wrong right off the bat. It took him 2 trys with my logs to line it out. My car drives great now. I'll be doing some harder acceleration runs later this week (rain moving in). I can't go all out yet as I held off on my dyno appointment until after this trans was installed and working. Unfortunately that will probably be after the release, but we'll see.
    Thanks Mike

    I dont have a GT500 but there is no talk in the terminator section about doing a 6R80 swap. what are the benefits of the 6R over the 4R70w?

    Most guys with the 4R70 use a manual valve body, although some do use the usshift controller. The benefit is having a 6 speed automatic transmission that can handle ALL the power in "D". Turbo guys will be loving this setup.

    Well then biggest benefit is that this thing is putting cars in the 9s stock. Can't do that with a 4r70w and 2 extra gears.

    Thanks guys. Is the gear ratio better than the 4R as far as faster acceleration?

    I talked with Karl again on this and the trans will be the limit. The clutch/shift learning process is what makes the difference. I just wanted to make sure this corrected.

    Thanks Mike

    Interesting. I see they make a stand alone computer now for the 6R. I wonder how hard the swap would be for an 03 cobra

    To clarify, no HP limit on the controller, just trans hard parts?
    I still think the big power guys will love the leave in 2nd option. Can use 1-6 during street and 2-5 on the strip.
    My tuner (Lidio at Alternative Auto in MI) has a great relationship with Carl and the 6R, we hoping for great things with this controller. My good friend already going 9.20s in a 5.0/TVS/6R '12 GT, trans and converter all stock with Lidio tune.

    Correct, no HP limit with the controller. Lidio was the guy that tuned my car back in 2005. I bought my X cal and converter from him for my 5R55. Boy that's been ages ago. He's very knowledgeable and a nice guy.

    Correct, but it's great it's built into this controller.

    Hey guys. sorry if this question sounds dumb. How does this transmission do from roll races with a blower? Im setting up my car to go from a dig but I will roll race as well. I got the list of what I will need. Just need to contact a few more guys.

    Does anyone have any experience with a street car, at relatively stock power levels?

    This would make for a nice driver as I get older and my knees give up. And a 662 hp 3900 lb ride should go high tens/low elevens with traction and less drama than its manual counterpart.

    Any experience in SVT land?

    Thx.
