Not worried about the hp one way or the other. I want the car to sound good, but not loud and abnoxious. I wanted a Walker muffler, but they are just too big for my application. Magnaflow is suppose to be good for hp, but very loud, so I am hoping the dynomax and reasonator will make the sound I want. I could still add another muffler at the back where the stock one goes if too loud. Have to wait and see.

The 3" is LOUD. Even on a 928 32v motor. That turbo muffler will definitely quiet it down. Also look into a resonated exhaust tip to ease more of the bite.

I'm watching this thread carefully. I really want to do the EROD since I'm in CA if my motor goes south (TBF or otherwise). I won't go any crazier than just the crate, the Renegade kit, and a 4L60E with a C5 torque tube. My wife isn't too good at manual transmissions and she would want to drive the car too.

Mongo, doubt you would need the Renegade Kit if you are going all Chevy. You would only do that if you were staying with the 928 transaxle. Renegade does have a radiator with the correct sized inlet and outlets, however it is not crossflow (2 directions) so the top hose and bottom hose are on opposite sides. The LS with Camaro/Corvette water pump could use a radiator with both water ports on the passenger side to clean up the front of the engine area. I don't think there is any real advantage to the 4L60, the 928 transaxle is every bit as strong as the Chevy, and you wouldn't have to build any mounts, manual or 6L80 or 8L90 are a different story and would warrant the extra fabrication required.

@Mongo - Spend the money on a 6l80e powertrain over the 4l60e. It's a much better driving trans that's several decades newer in design. Plus, the spark cut during the clutch to clutch shift sounds really cool.

...I feel like such an *** for not researching on Rennlist about William Jewett ( Willbj3 ) the scumbag. I had communicated with William for a few months about my dash, pod, door panels and headliner. In November I decided I was ready to have the pieces redone and since William was near by he came over and picked up the pieces. He seemed knowledgeable about 928's and 914 and was personable. William turned the parts in 10 days and delivered them back to me, everything looked to be done well except for the headliner needed work where I had him fill in the drivers visor vanity mirror hole. He said he would take it back and fix it and would return it when he got back from Oregon in a week or so. Like a dumb *** I paid him in full for everything since it was the holidays and he needed money. Since then, he promised to drop off headliner 3 times and then went silent. After a few weeks he said he was in AZ for family emergency and he would return in a week and give me my headliner, that was 2 weeks ago. William has blocked my phone number and does not reply to texts, or emails. He still has his craiglist ad up which he up dates often, but his Itsey site is no longer active.
Please be on the look out for a Black Sun roof delete headliner with vanity mirror cutout in the passenger side and filled in on the drivers side.

Not trying to derail Blagave's thread here... I chose the 4L60E as that tranny has the same gear counts as the auto S4. It would be the 'last' faint reference to an 80's car before being hurled down the road in a 430HP (well I'll be camming my build to 500) LS swapped shark.

Mark, thank you so much for the offer. I actually had two headliners and donated one to a member. I have since requested the headliner to be returned in case I donĺt recover the one from dick head 😀

Sometimes an unexpected visit is sufficient to recover stranded parts.

I worked for a while in the 1980's with a retired New York Giants lineman. Nicest guy in the world. He owned some apartment buildings, but never went himself to collect delinquent rent. Way too much liability. Instead he hired large uniformed but off-duty L.A. County sheriff's deputies. No fuss.

Doing as much stuff as possible before car goes to paint. Used two rolls of soundproofing and came up short. Will order another roll and finish after paint.
I really hate the install process, takes for ever. Going to try and tackle the doors with Cascade VB-2 product tomorrow.
