Re: SVX Straight line performance

This is me piping up!

I did not get a chance to really put the smack down on Toms' throttle pedal because its not my car and it was cold when I drove it..the shifting was...indescribable...It was like the car was not shifting at all...I almost had trouble keeping up with what gear I was in by listening to the rpm's...

There is virtually no delay in shifting...and dont get the wrong Idea..its not like a "BANG" (hey I just shifted how does your neck feel now?) type of shift ...its more like a very very swift glide into the next gear...and with the chip in the TCU it kept the rpms in the power band by not shifting too early or not to late made the car feel so right.

I dont think I passed the %50 mark of throttle input, never had to. The car just moved so effortlessly up and down all of the hills in WV.

I have owned several different gear ratios 3.54,3.70,3.90,4.44. If you live in a hilly area, or do less highway than city driving...the 4.44 rebuilt from lan, or just the valve body, are by far the best automatic transmission mods for the SVX that I have driven imho...personally...I think 3.90 is the most versatile and well balanced.

The TCU chip is the icing on the cake. It keeps the RPMS at optimal levels, or whatever you specify to Lan, It will absolutely save you MPG's. The car moves quicker with less throttle input, no question about it.

I never got a chance to drive the quick change. Tom if you want to send it to me I can install it in Johns "virgin" SVX...I will gladly give my input on that as well he eventually wants to do a 5 speed swap so youll get it back...unless I like it

I just now seen this I looked for you and everyone else before I left to say goodbye but the only person who was still there was Rebecca and she was on track duty. I was soaked and didn't want to get sick again after just coming off of a cold.

Re: SVX Straight line performance

I think a stock car with a valve body would break that record.

Take your wife where?
Mason Dixon would be a great spot for you to spank YTs 5 speed, NA 4.11 record by a solid .7-.9 seconds and get your name onto the bathroom stall divider with a number other than a phone number behind it. Just make it soon so I can fully smoke the rear tires on the Jag before the replacments come in.

Re: SVX Straight line performance

I ran a 13.8 in the SVreX at the Grassroots Motorsports Challenge in 2004. Stock engine and trans, car was SIGNIFICANTLY lightened, dry nitrous shot.

Still a very impressive stock tranny time in my opinion.

Re: SVX Straight line performance

Sigh....was looking to see some changes here. I'm still heartbroken I never got to beat Budafreak's record of 14.9. It actually prevents me from getting another SVX.
