We finally got some good testing on our 6r80 swapped Two-Valve during the first annual Mod Nationals in Memphis. We still have a lot further to go, but we’re beginning to see some results from our 6r80 transmission swap that we’ve been working on for 3 years. We’re finally in the 5’s at the 1/8 mile and working on 8’s for the 1/4 very soon. And the car still has great street manners and cold A/C.

Speedometer Calibration Testing

We can also provide a speedometer calibration for nearly any vehicle in North Carolina, South Carolina or surrounding areas. We test your vehicle’s speedometer against the actual wheel speed to determine if there is a discrepancy. We provide you an official notarized report of our testing results.
