I have done a few upgrades to make the tranny stronger. My specialty valve body, larger servos, and a few other additions.


Thanx again guys for all the support... I will have my x-cal 2 tomorrow night!!!! Pray that this thing runs right the first time...

Well(sigh), tried to fire her up, she ran for about a minute and blew a 6 foot flame out of the exhaust... No compression after that on the right bank(the stupid reverse side), I removed the supercharger and what did I see........ Three intake valves bent and looking at me!!!! WTF happend? pulled the engine back out, yanked the valve cover, inspected everything, and you know what???? The germans are a bunch of retards!!!!!!!!! No key ways, no splines, no nothing to hold the sprockets in place on the cams but a lousy left hand thread bolt???? WTF???? So in other words, fired up, ran for a minute, built up good oil pressure, sprocket spun on the cam, bent all the brand new stainless steel valves, left some nice eyebrows in the pistons, and cost me even MORE money!!!!!!! Should have new valves in a week or so.....
