If you still have your rear resonators, I would recommend putting them back on. That essentially was your anti-drone stage in the oem exhaust. You may even want to explore a middle ground solution...

I think you got the idea! :)

On the tire pressures, I would keep the fronts at whatever is the optimum is for a good stiff sidewall. That's going to preserve your turn-in bite. If you are going...

The counterpoint to this is that it can be argued that the Tremec 6-spd may not necessarily be on par in design with Porsche's manual, either. ;) You know I would have to chime in on this. :p

Thank you for this info point.

The real test to really quantify the 1st gear effect (if anybody with such hardware is listening), is to start collecting g-meter (acceleration) traces on 1st gear...

I've run 255/50r18 and 255/55r18 on mines, but that is only on the rear tires in a staggered setup (maintaining original 235 in the front).

Maybe another interesting question is...what do you think ends up being a better engine overall (assuming a modern build for both)?...a Gen 2 426 Hemi in the form of a big-block or a Gen 3 426 Hemi...

I don't think anybody disputes that v6's existed in 60's pony cars. I do think it is arguable if the v6 is what made those pony cars memorable to the point that we chose to reincarnate the models in...
