A friend of mine just had them finish up a full build for his car... Went in for the Valvebody and his clutch packs were toast.

I'm going in the morning to drop my car off the Valvebody.. I'll post a review on Monday when I get it back.

Full build is $5k installed.

The drive out to them is rather boring.. but the shop is nice.

The TCM-2650 is compatible with the GM 6L45/50, 6L80/90, 6T30/40/45, 6T70/75, Allison 1000 (5 and 6 speeds), the 2nd generation ZF 6HP and the Volkswagen DSG.

If only someone would do a custom controlled 6l80e !!!

I've run without gear control before. (TCU DME sync) Car shifted awfully. The revs hung and slammed into gear. Theres 100% things the DME does during shifts / messages it expects to receive or else the revs don't fall fast. We would need to do some modifications the DME bin as well probably or just code it for Manual (and simulate the clutch but thats easy just ground the circuit). Either way, Just thought I'd add that.

Question is : Do the level 10tranny holds more than 600+ HP. They claim 1000HP.
That I have to really see.

It really kills me that there's no tuning for the tcu available to really find out what these transmissions are capable of

I just got what Level 10 suggested. Definitely not trying to cut any corners on the build at this point. And since I got an upgraded torque converter they said it'd need about 11 qts.

Or grab a stand alone tcu TCM-2600 from PCS to control it. Either way this is likely the best solution. Brand new ctsv trans ~$3k would need machined flex plate, 6l90-n54 bell housing (6l90 uses a bolt on bell housing ftw, and the trans body dimensions are similar to the 6hp21 so should fit in tunnel without any fan fare), custom trans mount, drive shaft connection, figure out torque converter (aftermarket is readily available for this). And marry tcm-2600 controller to shifter and paddles. My guess is it would be a bit more than the level 10 after everything is said and done, but you now have full control for shift points and a proven power house of a transmission!

I'm investigating this currently. After I exhausted all other (my opinion) viable options for a reliable 6AT solution, I decided it would be easier not dealing with factory DME. It is too involved and it will take a long time for anyone to crack much less decipher the TCU/DME relationship and then it's going to be trial and error for a year or two before anything is finally sorted well enough to sell. Short of alpina coming out with a high boost upgraded hard parts and clutches flash option, I think this is a long way off.

If you do manage to burn up a 6l80/90, you can grab used ones for under a grand... Makes it worthwhile in my mind.

I wish someone would figure out an answer. Go for it!

After hearing about Terry's fully built transmission refusing to shift I just wanted to clarify something. So there's not any answer (transmission-wise) for a fast high horsepower N54 currently correct? Because no built 6HP21 solution is currently viable past 600whp, the manuals are slow and lose boost on shifts (I've heard NLS is a bad idea from very good sources), and there is currently no other option. So it seems like any N54 past 600 wheel is just a dyno queen and either slow on the street or only holds up for a (relatively) short time.

That's awesome for a track setup, I am guessing it's a drag only car? I couldn't imagine a th400 on a daily driven car. I had one in an old truck many moons ago and while it did great driving locally in 45mph areas, over that and the engine was screaming... Forget about an interstate.... Lol...

if that is the case I Will defiantly be switching platforms. GTR or Porsche more than likely.

This thread is making me sad

But yes, right now the N54 is an expensive, high-ceiling, dyno queen. The 6AT eats it north of 600WHP or so (I'm too scared to try anything north of 23 pounds), the 6MT bogs, and the Dual Clutch is an unknown unless you throw $$$$$ at it.

It should be noted the 2J was in the exact same spot for far longer. The only platforms which go ham at the strip right away are Domestic big cubes, built GTRs, and built P Cars. Most of the German and JDM stuff takes a long time to get right.

The motor is ready, rest of the platform just isn't there yet. Such is life when we're the pioneers
