Well couple new things. Currently in the process of pulling the motor. Someone local was kind enough to give me a old monster 6 puck they had laying around. Figure might as well give it a shot since it is relative low effort to pull the motor and swap them out. This way i will also have the mantic out and ready to go back for a rebuild.

My dad also decided to buy a tow truck for our corvettes should we decide to bring one to ls fest east or street car take overs ect. Some GM junk to tow our GM junk. I will say they did a decent job hiding the GM. I got to test drive it vs the Lexus LX570 back to back as the dealer had both. It was neat given both MSRPs new were 95-100 ish in the same class. Its amazing how two competitor cars can be made to serve the same purpose at the same price point but be so so different from material feel to how it drives.

Badass caddy. Why are you pulling the motor to do the clutch though? Have you found it is easier than dropping the torque tube? haha

Yeah its neat every option down to the little fridge in the glove box you really cant beat them for what they sell for certified pre owned especially if you get the platinum which reguardless of its 20k markup new seems to sell for the same price used.

I have done it both ways now on the same car. I think pulling the motor is much easier. Especially in your garage. I am pretty confident after looking at things last night that i will be able to pull the entire motor out as one unit with the entire turbo hotside ect all still attached. So basically remove all the wiring, intake manifold, motor mount bolts, radiator, steering rack, and torque tube bolts and she should be ready to pull. Easier said then done but id say maybe 4 hours of actual work per direction?

Pulled the motor tonight and found that the fly wheel bolts were clipping the springs in the clutch disks. I think this could have easily been the cause of the slipping and vibration that would come from the driveline when it would slip also why on the dyno it would catch its self after a slip or pull after pull unlike a normal slipping clutch.

Measured the disks and they are around 50% so i had my buddy turn down the set of fly wheel bolts like monster does with their twin disks and ill be slapping it back together tomorrow after work with the mantic instead of the free 6 puck i got. Hopefully my guess here is correct and it holds a bit more next time .

Well it held around 12 psi and would slip.
On the bright side i have my boost by gear and rpm working perfect. The cortex ebcs is a great unit.

So its time. Purchased a monster LT1-SC twin disk. Ill just sell the mantic to someone who wants to rebuild it for cheap.
