    I would like to get information on the controller also. Been looking everywhere for one.

    this shows how a ls wheel is too big to fit inside of the bellhousing.
    I've been running a 153 tooth plate however i had to modify the starter for it to work.
    I'll be using a 1" spacer / adapter next time so the flexplate doesn't have to reach into trans

    this is the first adapter, it's only 7/16" so the flexplate sticks out past it.

    I'll be using 2 plates like this, 1/2" each

    it's really not too bad, I decided to rip the existing controller out of the tranny and used an external one.
    other than that I used an ati adapter plate and 153 tooth gm flex plate to mate it up.
    I am currently manually shifting using two buttons, shift up and shift down. I'll be adding auto mode someday however manual mode is really what I was after,
    I actually only lock up the converter after 8th so it feels like a 9 speed.
    it's basically the same as the hellcat tranny, I shift in under 200 ms and it barks the tires in every gear.
    there's probably better trannys to use but I've tried 2sp, 3sp,4sp od, and a t56. This 8 spd kills them all
    Again, I'm only posting to help others interested in doing this, it took me a lot of searching to find the info so I'd be happy to help anyone save some time do this.
