Would it make sense???

Everybody seems to go with the same route for their 6ers as far as performance modifications go. CAI, exhaust, tuner, and maybe a bit of engine work, exc. Well I'm thinking about how to make everything more effecient rather than try to add power because these 3.8's aren't exactly something you put up big hp numbers with(and I have no problem with that.) My point is I may end up putting more into the transmission rather than just boltons for the engine with minimal gains. I've been researching 4r70w's and they have a potential and the aftermarket to make them bullet proof. So I was thinking new torque converter, revised valve body, and a deep pan and trans cooler to keep everything healthy when everything is said and done. I do know my way around a transmission even though I'm only a senior in highschool. So I'm not trying to add hp but I am trying to get it to the ground. Any input would be awesome, thanks

I like your idea but spending so much into that is a waste. Build the motor then go with your idea. I done a Jmod and going to get a tranny cooler. I done bolt on the best way to build these cars are. Tires,gears,Tlock,lca,spring. Then you have a base to build your car where u want it to be

To add to that any weight you lose takes strain off your motor. I would suggest an aluminum flywheel( I installed this and glad I did. It made my car feel like 300lbs lighter) and aluminum drive shaft.

But you have an auto so see if you can get an aluminum flex plate. Efficiency is just making it so the motor doesn't have to work as hard, right? So lighten up! Lol don't carry anything in your car you don't have to, 35psi, a good quality CAI teamed up with a complete free flowing exhaust, married with a tune will do a lot for your motor. Plus those tuners do wonders for auto trannys. Lowering springs may help with your drag coefficient( I don't really know, just throwing out ideas. I'm sure someone will jump on and correct me). As far as gear I think stock gearing is already pretty efficient, right?

No for a auto a 4:10 gears is great but depends on what your future plans are. At least 3.73 will work wonders
