Re: Sonnax Line Pressure Booster for 545rfe and 66rfe

my plan is to build out the entire trans with billet and tune once it finally gives up. It can take power, its just tuned like trash and QC like trash. im currently experiencing TC lockup issues where it wont lock up from parked into D or R. Takes alot of revs to get moving when cold. already had va...

Re: Sonnax Line Pressure Booster for 545rfe and 66rfe

The quality of the Valve body is our real issue... low pressure shifts would be ok if the directed pressure didnt divert beyond the proper channels. i wonder if the higher pressures make the compromised valve body deteriorate further. If it wasnt for that spring, i was also going to do that upgrade....

Re: Hemi Towing coolant and transmission Temperatures?

since you modified your trans, you may as well throw additional cooling capacity in there. Another radiator would do alot for you.

i concur with the fact the my toyo RT in 35s and 37s have been phenomenal with zero issues truly.

Re: (New) Toyo A/T III

I love Toyo but I need to see these be a big improvement over the AT II before I would consider them over my STT Max’s. The AT II is about the most disappointing tire Toyo makes. have you ventured to the toyo RT yet? they fulfilled everything i was worried about with the ATs, yet kept me far enough...

Re: 2nd Gen Ford Raptor

i wish $20k could include those parts lol! we could probably get away with that on a best gen, but i still love my 4th gen.

honestly, im still on the boat to no way in hell FCA puts in the right axles shafts, u joints, and transfer cases we need to actually abuse/feed these TRX trucks.
