"Big" Power with a ZF trans?

5 or 6 speed... doesn't matter.

Who's got a 400+hp DD?? How does it drive, what all is needed as far as trans build, and what tuning are you running?

Any tuners do manual trans specific tuning? I know it's different....

Any help, along with specs as far as what injectors, turbo, tuning would be nice....

Thanks in advance guys.

Re: "Big" Power with a ZF trans?

I should be around ~400+ with my '97, pretty much what I got is:

Swamps 200cc Hybrids/30% EH nozzles
Moddifed H2E: 66mm/17cm (76mm turbine?, I think)
Stock SD fuel pump/Regulated return (set at 65psi)
Programming from Swamps(95% in "Baby Swamp" program )
Hypermax H2E downpipe with 4" exhaust by me
Haisley Machine Street puller Dual Disc

This is all with stock 15* HPOP, everything from the selector valve back is stock, No intercooler, 3" intake covers w/ Hmax 3" Y pipe. Its fun, but I need some traction control assistance also. I'm really, really tempted to yank the ZF 5 speed for a PCS manned 4R100 though. . .

Re: "Big" Power with a ZF trans?

I am running a ZF-6 with my current setup. Sometimes I would like a auto but more often than not I am glad I have a ZF.

Just put a good clutch in front of it and add some power...

Re: "Big" Power with a ZF trans?

Bean has a ZF6 in his Fummins, House has a ZF6 in his puller so they can handle the power. Just don't go expecting a drag strip truck out of it.
