Maddog... You got any pics of your setup... Steering wheel? Just curious how that looks. Does it look similar to the Pontiac GXP models? I always thought that was kinda cool... And convenient but from what I read... Tranzformer basically gives you a similar option through the steering wheel.

I have the Diablosport Intune but just have not used it yet... That firms up shifts as well correct? That's really all I am wanting. I don't really want the "old school" shift kit I had in my 78 Grand Prix that I put 4.11 gears in. It was fun but as a daily driver... Not sure that's what I would want daily.
"2nd gear chirp" was cool "back in the day" but not looking for quite that extreme.

I need to learn more about the underdrive pulley....... noted
The slp underdrive pulley replaces the harmonic balancer. It is lighter than stock and has a higher retention wall to reduce thrown belts. It give about a 10 rwhp gain and you can pick one up for only a few hundred dollars from slp.

Maddog- have you looked into all the options the tranzformer has? The paddle shifters would be replaced by using the volume control on the steering wheel.

exhaust is your next move, JBA shorty headers ($350) and remove your suitcase muffler ($20 for piping and the shop welding them in place)located mid car (I kept the resignators) and u will be surprised with the results.....I was. and the nice thing is if you dont like the sound at least you didnt just spend $1000 plus on a catback that you dont like.

Doesn't the Tranzformer give you the ability to control the Esp on our cars? So buying both items from Zauto is not necessary correct?

The two work together. After the esp is off the tranzformer has an option to reset and reenable when you please with out having the car turned off. The tranzformer wont completely turn off esp like the esp off device will.

No I just have the tranzformer. If I want to turn esp off I use my tuner and put it in dyno mode.
