I never understood build threads....

 

so I thought I would start making one too  :P

 

Anyways, I am not much of a drag guy and not looking for super high horse power.  Just a lot of low end to power me out of corners and pick up some time down straights.  I really just wanted to upgrade my trans as I feel my current AMS 9s are just fine but with the HKS GT1000/tranny bundle I decide, hell, why not and went all in.

I am not porting the intake manifold or going bigger.  For what I need ~800 or less should be plenty on the track.

 

I plan to run two more events (one at TWS, and 3 days again at COTA with BMWCCA) and the car will go into the shop.

 

Anyways, Kenny at Jotech has been starting to acquire the parts.

 

and the part I got to see today???  The rare HKS transmission kit!

 

Here is the unboxing.

 

 

really an unboxing as it comes in the big ass crate.

also, if I identify any of these parts incorrectly, it's because I am a novice at DCT

You bought the HKS tranny? Curious why you just didn't go with Shep or Jacks and save a bundle?

I haven't seen Shep post much for a while but maybe when he gets the parts he can post some impressions and more pics as it gets put together.

 

Shame, won't get to see these parts once all buttoned up!

that was the original plan....and like anything, I bit off more than I could chew.  I am pretty happy with the car and rarely get passed with just street tires on the track.  I didn't want my tranny to fail at the track and was going to do the Shep upgrade.

 

Then of course everyone starts mentioning the package HKS deal with the turbos....my friend who knows nothing about cars (but got hooked when I took him to co-drive a track weekend) and points at the blow off valves wonder if those are the turbos, goats me into the deal..etc..etc..

 

so basically it was the combo deal with the HKS GT1000 and the transmission.  That is for the price of a turbo upgrade and a built shep transmission.  It's super close in price to this  GT1000/tranny kit.

 

The guys at Jotech already were saying how much more you get with the HKS than current tranny sets as it replaces a lot of the parts and not just reusing stock so it's not like I am getting less for the cost.

SO AWESOME
Your build is exactly how I would go with mine, no holds barred! Jotech will do it right, they've installed and worked with all the build packages out there and nothing fits and finishes like HKS.

Great build thread, i cant wait to hear more info about the product and what Shep thinks about the kit aswell. certainly a good deal you got there for the turbo trans kit. people thought the actual kit was like 3x more expensive due to the advertising deal, which was not the case as you found out. hope that hks show off the price list of the components... cause there are a lot that would be great to go in with other parts currently available.

With money not as a limiting factor, this is a very good option,

But shep doesn't replace items in the trans that haven't proven to be a problem. Some of those parts are only needed at 1000+ hp, and even then a shep trans upgrade still works fine.

The AMS upgrades do well at 1000hp and up as well.

Shawn, 

 

I agree with ya.  It's a pricey option.  However, the package was about 4-6k more with this set than doing a similar turbo upgrade and shep transmission.

 

But would love Sheps opinion on it when he does the install.

I sent Shep a pm to let him know my transmission was coming and to post his opinion both good and bad and hopefully pictures.

 

I see that he hasn't logged on since Dec so I hope he is still active and will check in.
