Sigh I never implied I was "fast", you don't need to be fast, have a turbo, or a Hemi to spin tires. Torque is all that's needed, and with a 3.5 with the difference in gearing, she'll more then easily spin the tires. Put on some hard rubber kicks and give it a good jab and she'll clean them to the cords - hell yank the e-break if you want to go to go to town standing still. Considering friends with brand new 2010 $80k GM's with V8's can barely get the tires to chirp, I think us LH boy's are doing pretty damn good!
Frankly, I don't understand your ground for debate. I'm simply contesting the previous comment, just because one SE sh!t's the bed when it's floored doesn't hold up much against all of them, given the excessive "abuse" mine is always put under. Given he did imply that all of them would do the same as his friends. If the difference in experience teaches nothing, it's a crap shoot!
Who is not to say with the right circumstances can you make the (or any) tranny handle the needs - that's been my grounds the entire time I've posted on this thread. I realize these tranny's weren't designed to be bolted up to a 440 Hemi and launched off the standing up on it's rear wheels; but the amount of flack they get is ridiculous, problematic or not.
In any event, if I was going to do a huge build up, like you've mentioned many ways too do it. Personally, I'd stroker a 3.5 to a 4.0, set it up just right and twin turbo it to handle 12-15 PSI, which is a nice light but good range. Snag that LX read-end and RWD tranny out of the vandalized Charger at the yard for peanuts and have myself some fun!
That said, I know a few prowler guys that push 12PSI on their prowlers, no issues. But they have a spare 42LE waiting, given the amount of 2.7 failures, parts are easy to come by. It's a matter of how you drive it after the fact I suppose. Even a $500,000 dragster will fly all to hell just warming up the tires, or going down the 1/4 once.... Seen it many times! :P
So with everything said, who's gonna drop one of these in a LH or LX first?
