I was just thinking about that, and am in awe. I'll leave it at that until our next conversation.

Speaking of. 3rd Coast is soon, get moving.

there is.....but lots of aftermarket control systems for the 6L80E.....lots and lots of old school hot rods use them

The other downside of the Vette transaxle is WEIGHT.....I believe they are 200lbs vs 122lbs for the G28-03

Default ideal ratio

So the whole Vette drivetrain should push the 928 more towards the 45/55 ratio?

Not really........if you run the vette engine thats 100lbs lighter, you still are lighter.....
