Casey Gets Converted

After unleashing the fury of a F1-D Procharger on his 2008 Pontiac G8 GT, and cranking out 730rwhp on 13lbs of boost, Casey found one of the weak links in the drive train.  We saw this coming since the stock 6L80E transmission is only good to 600-650rwhp, and the plan was to baby this mean machine around.  Like always the siren song of the gas pedal is almost impossible for anyone to resist, and Casey's transmission fell victim to the horsepower and met an early demise.  Luckily the damage was not catastrophic, and gave us the chance to install some other much needed parts.

The build:

Re-Built 6L80E
Yank SS2800 Converter
Earl's Transmission Cooler
Camaro Transmission Pan
Camaro Transmission Filter
