    V3? Are you using a MAF or SD? I can help you out although I'm more familiar with with tuning SD.

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with v3 lite, I started with it too and the only reason I went to v3 full was for the boost by gear option. You can even run SD with lite, although that is neither here nor there. No charge to assist and I am on the east side. I not a professional mechanic, I just work on these cars because I love them so. In fact I'm headed over to fwbt's house now to help him with his 1g. Can't wait to get his beast back on the road!

    I'm working this weekend, maybe on Friday? I'm off pebble hills and Saul kleinfeld.

    I don't have a hoist but the good news is you don't need one, just a jack to drop the transmission.

    I need to get speed density soon, I'm trying to degree my cams while my motor is out but not doing very good LOL. DSMlink is next, along with a clutch, but buy both is $1000+. I'm sure you are going to have to help me walk though mine Nate.

    No problem man! I actually just saw your picture degreeing the cams in the "what did you do today" thread. I've never done that before but I did save this link awhile back for in case I ever did, check it out if you haven't already: 4G63 Camshaft Degreeing

    How did I miss this thread? If you have a MAF tuning Link closed loop is stupid easy. As long as you have the the right stuff to do it. (ie. wideband). I've done my fair share of trans drops (FWD and AWD) I hate having to try to balance the trans on a jack while keeping everything in check. Invariably I end up setting it on my chest and benching it in... FWIW, the best way I've found is strap it to a hoist and lower it out. I have a hoist so it's nothing for someone to PM me and I'll do my best to give them a hand.

    Hey Jim, He doesn't have a wideband and apparently his car is down now due to the clutch so we weren't able to get any tuning done.

    Sounds like you just need a bigger jack, LOL. I've always done it that way without issues. Of course it's always nice to have an extra set of hands either way.

    IIRC, you don't *NEED* a WBO2 for a closed loop tune since V3 would just use the narrowband sim. Gear, you got a fairly stock car, getting a good safe tune isn't all this voodoo with Link. Actually the videos on Link are a great resource for getting that closed loop tune down. In all honesty, as long as there are no boost leaks and the BOV is recirc'ed, I'd get the clutch fixed and sport a stock tune till you can get the supporting mods.

    FWIW, I'm off work till Tues and my paint doesn't get here till Tuesday anyways, but I'll load up the rip kit in the truck and give ya a hand if you want.

    If its a fwd tranny, you dont need anything but your bare hands to drop it, or put it back in. Even my skinny ass can manage that. If its an awd then forget it... A cherry picker makes the job for either instance a cake walk. However the 2g's take a little bit more to get the trannys out. Make sure you have something underneath the engine to support it once you remove the 3 transmission mounts.

    Also don't forget to get your flywheel resurfaced, and make sure they step it correctly.
