PNW 5EAT guys-anyone w/hexmods VB?
 
So I'm wondering if any of you PNW 5EAT guys are running the hexmods F1 Valve body?
I keep looking at the thread and wanting it more.

I wanted to see if anybody would be willing to give me a ride before I pull the trigger?
I'll pay you for gas and your time if you want?

I'm up North, about 20 mins from Everett, anyone close by?

I swear I don't stink :(

@OP, I've also been eyeing the VB mod, but, I'm thinking about just doing it right and getting a whole new tranny first. . Ugh, seven G setback.

I have one, love it.

Under light throttle it feels like stock, heavy throttle is where you feel the difference.

Any other mods? Some say this prolongs the life of the tranny.

Too busy with work and a 10 month kid, or I'd give ya spin.

Im about stage 1.5
Stock UP, Invidia catted DP, high flow cat, Borla cat back, and the OTS Cobb stage 2.

I'd like to prolong the trans. life as much as I can, and if I get itchy for more HP, it'll be there already...

pretty sure he was talking about the import performance transmissions tranny

The IPT trans I was looking at said $4295.
There must be another one then?

MrTris 12-04-2012 02:14 PM

I was looking at the ones from the dealership. I honestly just wanted to get a stock replacement and do the VB all at the same time. . . But, I like the options here, fellas! So, half the price of a new trans, and all I hafta do is give them mine for turnaround??

I could dig it. .

TheBlackPearl 12-04-2012 02:45 PM

Do not get an OEM trans if you do get a new one.

IPT is half the price, why wouldn't you?
Their trans is fully built, not just an upgraded VB.

MrTris 12-05-2012 12:47 PM

Link to IPT?

I have a hexmod vb. It has done wonders for me.
I'd consider it if I can find my boost leak.
