Sad to say no, just got rid of my gas I put in it last oct 27th when I topped the tank off to store it for the winter. Tuner said to bring mine back in for twiking. Still does not idle real good. Something to do with parasitic air. I know nothing about tuning. But anything off idle its a beast in my eyes. Wife still loves when I go through the gears on country back roads, just not alot of free time.That will change soon I hope .

OK Sammy. Here ya go: https://www.ssforums.com/forum/force...0-results.html Bottom line is that you don't need the full kit if you already have a supercharged LS3. $6500 sounds a whole lot mo better. That's assuming they make the 2650 with Corvette spacing of the drive. You think the thing will fit under your hood?

Edit: I think the SS and the Corvette LS3's use the same accessory spacing. Shoot, messed another one up. Camaro LS3's are the ones that use a different spacing.

I'm thinking that my boost level would be ~8.5? with the stock 2.5" stock GS exhaust?
So, I'm thinking your 7.4 psi boost (with a smaller pulley) is due to your Cam & headers?
My mechanical experience with compressors would lead me to think that at 7.4# of boost, the "load" or "resistance" or "parasitic" loss is *LESS*, thus you are less likely to experience belt slip?
Meaning the resistance to get that intake charge in is *easier*...which equals less load on the blower = less potential of belt slip?
That's based on my D- grade average in High School in the late 70's expert opinion...
My plan if I do flex fuel is an 87mm with a 10% OD HB, Dayco tensioner, cam and same exhaust as I have now (with gutted cats).
Theory is that will give me less power but *might* not expose me to major belt slip conditions?
Or maybe I'll just get an 81mm and make a custom roller chain for the blower only LOL...
Just so you know, I have a brand new Griptech 3.4" (87mm) sitting in my garage with your name on it...

So... May have bad news...

My tuner has been struggling with my trans tune ( I swear the M6 guys do NOT have issues us A6 guys do). I'm currently running the exact same trans tune that Monsta01 had on his 9.X car. The problem is, I'm still seeing flare every once in a while on 1-2, 2-3, 3-4 shifts. My tuner know thinks that the clutches may be going. I'm at a loss. Outside of some street tuning, and 4 quarter mile passes - I use this car to go get ice cream with my 4 year old! Car has 6,700 miles on it since I bought it in 2007 (its a 2008).

My tuner literally took the exact same file that's in my car and put it in a 56 chevy with a whippled LS3 and 6L80, and the car shifts so much harder than mine. Its like my trans is loose?

Just complaining out loud. The last time I had the car out (this past weekend) it shifted nicely at 1-2 (6500ish), but had little man in the car so obviously didn't want him complaining to Mom about how fast Dad was driving the car...

Yeah, you got that right. Tuning a 6L80 is a real PITA, took me months before I could get mine to stop bouncing off the limiter. I have a copy of Joe's [email protected] tune too, but I can tell you that it didn't work for me and neither did the Tuning School manual. Remember that the ECM tune also affects how the trans shifts. I keep forgetting to send you a copy of my tune. I'll do that later today or tomorrow. Feel free to use that at your own risk!

Thank you sir, but not necessary - I already have a 3.4" / 86mm and a 3.1" / 81mm...

I've been accumulating parts slowly.
I have a 10% OD Dayco SFI s/c balancer, and a Dayco tensioner.
Was even thinking about spending some money on the ECS stuff on sale currently...such as Stage 1 fuel system, an ECS trans bracket, etc

Sammy I have a question for you; my 3.4" Griptec pulley is substantially rougher and is marked "Micro L2". Even the lettering on the face is much rougher - the lettering will snag on soft fabric. The other one - in a newer larger white SCOL box - is not nearly as rough. Both the belt area nor the letter engraving are rough, but both much smoother...

Sammy - you gave me Monstas tune. Iím thinking it just isnít for me. Send me yours to my email and Iíll see how different it is. I just donít believe the trans is bad. When doing the cooler a couple of weeks ago the fluid looked brand new still.

FWIW, one thing about the 6L80e's - you guys would smoke me from a dig. Clutch cars - at least for me - are difficult to launch well, and consistently. Not to mention my poor consistency & successful/fast 2-3 shift

But, but, but....they don't break as often, don't cost as much to fix, and are WAY more fun to drive!!!

Hmmn, thatís interesting Mitch. I didnít know there was any such thing. Iíll take a look at my GripTech pulleys and see if they have any such marking on them.

Really now? Change clutch, much?
Transmissions donít break themselves. People (mostly tooners) break them.

Iíll do that in a little bit Mark. I seriously doubt anything is wrong with your transmission. But these sumbitches are finicky as hell when it comes to tuning, and the simplest thing can make them go nuts. I had my truck all sorted and then decided to pull the trans and do a whole set of sonnax valve body upgrades and put the newer style pump in it late last year, and after that it shifted so damn hard my fillings were falling out. Had to go right back through the tune, but the trans is working decent again as of just recently. And, boy, have I abused the **** out of that 6L80. These trannies are tough as hell, no matter what you hear on here about them. (Wait, I can still use the word ďtranniesĒ right?)

Mitch/Sammy,
I just ordered the 3.2" griptec from Capa Performance here in Australia. It has the L2 micro stamped on it as well from the photo they sent me.
If you go to the griptec site, they also have a L3 for certain jackshaft maggy pulleys, but not all of them. I was going to e-mail them about the differences,
but just decided the L2 version would be ok. I googled the L2 version and i am convinced it has another level of abrasiveness over the normal griptec. As
for the L3, i'm not sure?
