pavtek 355 ?
JUST WONDERING IF ANYONE HAS USED THE PAVTEK 355 SILVER MOTOR COMBO?ITS TO GO IN MY HQ SEDAN.
ANY IDEAS ON AUTOS (I HERE U CAN GET THE TRIMATICS FAIRLY STRONG NOW.OR IF I CAN FIT A T700 WITHOUT TOO MANY DRAMAS.I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE AN 11s CAR THATS GOOD FOR SUNDAY CRUISES WITH THE FAMILY.
ANY ADVISE WOULD BE GREAT.

From what Ive heard T700s arnt any stronger than old trimatics,
T400s on the other hand can handle heaps of hp, but suck up 42 hp.
A strengthened trimatic is the go for it only sucks up 18 hp.

Thanks For That!
My Thoughts With The T700 Was The Over Drive For The H/way.but I Suppose It Depends If Its Going To Make A Substantial Difference To Be Worthwhile.

Whats the dollar cost in building a tri to suit say 450hp versus a t400 thats going to basically be stock? I say go the turbo, youll always be able to strengthen it further than you will the tri. The only other variable I guess is whether you already have a box. Tri's are cheap compared to turbos at the wreckers.

I Was Speaking To Dtm Auto Transmissions On Friday And They Have A Trimatic In A Vl With 900+ Hp And Have No Dramas.
$1500 To Build A Trimatic Or A T400
$2500 To Do A T700
Plus I Have To Add Converter.
The T700 Converter Is Substantially More Pricey.
So Im Leaning Towards The Tri At This Stage.IF YOU WANT MORE INCHES."STROKE IT"

You'll have no reliability/driveability issues with a Pavtek 355 IMO. Pavtek have their hands in my 393 and it's needed zero work after it was up and running. Unlike a 351 that I had done by another workshop. I don't hesitate about driving my car 200+k's, race it and drive 200+k home again. Cruise's? I've been on at least 10 and even drive it to work on occasion. Wished I could drive it more but I'd have to find sponsorship to fund the fuel. rofl.
Mick and Theo do good work. They are conservative on their hp figures for their engines. Don't be surprised if it makes more than it was supposed to.XB Fairmont sedan email@example.com

I Didn't Go Into Too Much Detail On The Phone.i Just Told Them That I Want It Built Strong Enough To Take Odd Run Down The Quarter With Around 450+hp.
What Would You Suggest I Ask? autos Are Another Shady Area For Me.IF YOU WANT MORE INCHES."STROKE IT"

Just make sure they know exactly what your doing with the car. That way if theres a problem you've got a leg to stand on. That goes for the stall converter guys. eg correct weight of the car, cam specs, tyre size and diff ratio.
Get it done properly in the first place and it'll be good for years.
