I picked up the tranny at better than 50% of retail cost... The plan was going to be to rebuild my stock Atx with the lentec guts (this is the most effective route) however I was approached by some one online that had a new unused lentec in the crate for a very reasonable price.

I will say that I got the thing installed parts and labor for less than $1500 which is how much the local shops charge for a oem replacement + shift kit.

A tune is not required for the transmission. It will just help it shift a little faster/firmer.

Retail on the entry level lentec is $2000.. However there are more cost effective routes to go.. This guy just seems to have built a brand that's recognized in the focus community. Plenty of shops all around the US that can offer the same level of quality and will handle the typical street modifications.

got my car back...

i'm not claiming to be 'stanced' (its a dd that hauls kids and groceries and i find my self trying to beat my last MPG score as often as i am pulling corners) but here are stance specs:

Wheel Brand/model/Spec: Mim 16x7.5 20et (Model 4100? Designed for 79-93 Mustang)

Tire Brand/model/Spec: 195/45 Continental Pro Contact

Suspension parts: Spring tech 2" springs (Blue)

Drop and alignment spec:
Fenders: 24" F, 23.5" R
Wheel gap: 1.75" F, 0.5" R

Camber
Front -0.5
Rear -3.3 (-2.5 of that is natural)

Toe -0.03

Fenders were lightly rolled.. Inner lips are bent almost completely back at the crown of the rear fenders. I experience rub in the rear only under extreme conditions.

Some more adjustments are in order but its going to sit like this for a while.. going to put more focus on the motor over the next year.

Can I ask why you're running almost 3.5 of camber in the rear? Doesn't seem like there's a need when you're not that low.

Bad poke @ 20et without the camber. Tires were rubbing.. Body work prevents aggressive roll/pull
