OK, so lately I've been brainstorming about my future performance upgrades, yet again... I plan on having my Transgo HD2 shift kit installed in the next coming months, along with a renovated exhaust system from JBA shorties through another customized extended B Pipe set-up with two sets of MF HF (to meet CA CARB visual requirements)... afterwards, Up-Rev for tuning, then saving for JWT cams, to be installed after that, and re-tuning...
I know I will not be happy after all that time and $ has already been spent, so I have been thinking of how I can get more "neck jerking" boost without going through a $5k supercharger or turbo system... I will most likely bottle feed the beast with a nice wet NO2 system... however that leads me to think of the impact it'll play on just having a "tightened" OEM transmission... so I started to google a bit and found this interesting site, company being out in NJ... Has any of you East Coast Titan racers and performnce junkies done business with them or had any experience with their complete transmission / torque covertor systems? Thank you for looking and any feedbacks would be greatly appreciated...

before I get more thread links... Yes, I have used "SEARCH" and read up on the transmission threads, including toomnymods custom tranny build... just want to expand on other options available... ;)

That's what grabbed my attention... I thought I recognized the picture and suspected that someone here had been the guinea pig to get their tranny built... Oh, well... Guess it's back to the emails and local shop hopping... I have an awesome old school transmission guy set to do my shift kit, so I guess I will ask him if he will be able to tear it down and rebuild it to be bullet proof... And I'll also get in touch with L-10...

Toomny, weren't you gonna sell your T???

Toomny would be the authority, but my understanding is that "bullet proof" has a lot to do with the Uprev line pressure software.

I'm thinking of wet NOS, with a huge tank and extreme amount of shots controlled by a multi-switch panel... With my "Fast N Furios" Up Rev tuning software running on a touch screen pad... :rofl: I suspect I'll probably melt a pipe before blowing the tranny though...

Beats me.. not like they cut me a deal.. spent over 6k there.. still haven't received rbs Titan torque converter that they lost and refuse to replace.. how you lose a 55lb torque converter is beyond me

From what Jared told me he said unless they are running boost and willing to drive to their protuners or Uprev facility you will not be able to get this done.. it is very tricky getting it just right and need you truck there in person to do it..

Closest authorized Up Rev "Tuner" is in San Jose, but from their site, looks like they specialize in cars... However, So Cal has a few and I recall there was a Dyno Meet at one of them in the past years... now, I'm thinking this "boost" idea is gonna really cost me as well... sheesh... I can just here the wife now... :rofl:

Boost is very addictive.. at first I thought 4-5lbs would be fine.. lol that lasted maybe 2 months and I'm running 8 now.. still want more but I'm afraid to get 12 Psi its gonna cost me another 15-20k for a built motor and Trans swap.. so I think this is most likely the end of the road for me..

I agree... the performance itch keeps coming back worse than before after you scratch it... That's what I hate about performance modding, it really never get's to the point of satisfaction... I'm working on scratching the visual itch with next month's glass mods and paint or wrap, and know I will be content with the appearance and off-road functionality... But even if I get my NOS done and tuned, I'll be still looking to pull another fricken 15hp from somewhere... :rofl: the funny thing is, my wife even told me last month that I could buy a "new sports car" if I would sell my Titan (paid for) and j just chuckled, telling her I don't need a sports car because it won't go where I can drive my Titan... (she really doesn't like my off-road escapades because there is always something that needs to be wrenched before and afterwards...). The way I tried to explain it to her was that, either way it goes, I would be spending more on beefing up a new car rather than improving on my paid off ride... but in actuality, it's all the same though :rofl: I just like to think I'm saving by modding my Titan further...

Toomnymods,

Not trying the threadjack but I posted a question as to a good NOS system and installation for just occassional street racing.. maybe like a 50 to 75 shot. However, I did not get any intelligent response. Can you direct me to a good post or pm me some information?

Nevermind, I read your additions and see that your boost is turbo. Thanks anyways!

Thanks!

My plan is to have a local tranny buddy handle the IPT bullet-proof rebuild for me, and I'll be sending off my TC and VB for reworking. I only want to do this once, so I'm waiting until the cams are in so the TC can be matched accordingly.
Still a heck of a lot cheaper than buying the fully rebuilt one from them.

I figure the OEM tranny w/ Transgo upgrade will be sufficient to handle my future plan to install JWT cams but concerned about it holding up once I throw a monstrous wet NOS into the mix... the good thing is that it might hold up well if used sparingly on tracks, but I want to be able to use it while in the desert or sand drags... I am going to try and get in on the annual Avenal Sand Drags this year to "test" how my T will do as it is prior to cams, then later w/ NOS boost too...

I feel ya. My concern is my high mileage AND the way I drive. I'd feel a whole lot more comfortable stomping on the gas all the time knowing the tranny was up to the challenge.

We need a step by step how to and a youtube video when that happens. I saw a rebuild book on somebody's web site, either Level10 or IPT.

I rebuilt an Allison auto in a big truck from a book and VHS tape 20 years ago. I dunno if you need electron microscopes and particle accelerators to work on the new ones or not.

it's those darn touchy Flux Capacitors that need to be properly calibrated that worries me... I think if I were to launch a DIY tranny re-build from a book or video, I would go get a take-off from the Salvage Yard so I can still keep my functional one intact... I love to turn wrenches but hate little moving parts... it's like my wife getting on me about going through a watch a year... she asks why I just don't get my watch repaired, and I tell her, it's cheaper for me to buy a new one for $20 from Wally Mart rather than $50 to repair the old one... :rofl:

Isn't the p0720 the speed sensor?

Never mind found it!

P0720 NISSAN Description:
The speed sensor (revolution sensor) detects the revolution of the idler gear parking pawl lock gear and emits a pulse signal. The pulse signal is sent to the Transmission Control Module (TCM) which converts it into vehicle speed.

I'm setting up an appointment with an UPREV protuner (Henson Performance, Bessemer AL) to flash my ECU. I'm going to get James Henson to do the Line pressure upgrade after talking with [email protected] the other day. Toomny is right, only UPREV or Protuner facilities can dot his mod since your truck has to be there, this isn't something they can send out in an E-Tune.

I have a stock trans with a transgo shift kit, so I may be the first to recieve this line pressure upgrade on a nonbuilt transmission.

Also going to spend some extra time and get James to adjust the cam phasing with the CVTCS system and do strictly a 93 performance tune. Hope all goes well, and I will keep you all informed. Btw good luck with the trans build, just DON"T GO TO IPT!!!

You can source all the ALTO Red Eagle transmission parts and maybe have a local shop install them?

I just want to install JWT CS2 cams and thats it for performance upgrades for my titan, hopefully i won't have to build my transmission because my titan is almost paid off and I'm going crazy over the new 2011 Mustang GT 5.0.... my god that thing is insane.

JPC racing has taken a 2011 GT 5.0 to 507rwhp all motor, with
JPC CNC Stg 1 heads,
JPC cams
JPC LT headers, O/R X-pipe, axle back exhaust
JLT Cold Air intake
JPC Custom Tune
FRPP BOSS 302R Intake manifold, which btw gain 27rwhp over stock with above mods.

507rwhp All motor!!! on 5.0L that is 120hp/lb, thats real close to the Ferrari 458 Italia, which is a direct injected engine.. For a fraction of the cost...

Toomny, i thought I read somewhere you were going the 2011 GT 5.0 route, dude every time I read about one, it makes me drool and pushes me to pay my truck off sooner! For example a stock 5.0 GT automatic with JUST a Kennebell 2.8LC kit at 10psi runs 10.6s 1/4mile, with slicks and cage as well... Sorry about the thread jacking....got carried away again!
