    Smile Lookie What I got!



    A HUGE thanks to Mike and Jon for all their help today!!!! I did a little bit, but they did the majority of the work! I definately could not have done it without them!

    Started at 9am. Done by 6. All in a ways work.

    I still have a few odds and ends to tie up, but you're now looking at the world's first T56 Caddy Fleetwood!!!!!

    Oh, and it's a BLAST to drive!!!!!!

    Congrats Bill. I know you've been wanting this for awhile. What kind of shifter are you using?

    Hey, did I get this right? Your Fleetwood now has a stick?!!

    If so, I guess BMW can no longer claim that their Fives are the only four door, vee-eight, rear-wheel, standard transmission cars in the world.

    All in an afternoon? That's impressive. Can you post more pictures of the installation? I'd love to hear more about it. Congrats, and enjoy that ride.

    Hey Guys,

    Sorry it took me so long to repost... I've been busy...uh... DRIVING!!!!!!!


    Heh heh...

    Thanks for all the props guys! This is by far the MOST AWESOME mod you can do. It TOTALLY transformed the way the car drives!!! YEEEEEEEEEE-HAAAAAA My plates REALLY fit now!

    Can you tell I'm excited?

    See my website for more pics. Here's a link to the T56 Swap page.

    I'm undecided on a console now. I was pretty gung ho about getting one, but now I really like where the shifter comes up. There's plenty of room in front of the seat. I'm going to get a Hurst boot and run it like that for a while to see if I like it...


    I'll take more pics once she's all buttoned up.

    How about this?





    I'll take some more pics of the interior after I get it all buttoned up.

    (I'm actually kind of surprised this didn't make more of a splash here... :disappoin )

    Well, if the weather holds out, I'll have some numbers from the track tomorrow!

    I seriously doubt the 6-speed is going to give you any better ET's. Matter of fact, unless you put some slicks on it, you may have a problem getting a decent 60'. Unfortunately, these cars are rather limited as far as rear tire room so I'm sure you'll have no problem breaking traction with the manual trans. That's the main reason I never changed my torque converter, I'm already able to break the tires loose at the line so there's no reason to give me more power to launch with unless I can increase my car's ability to handle it.
    Then I'm thinking that with the engines broad powerband, all the shifting isn't needed to help keep it on the pipe since the pipe's so wide. Usually a 6-speed is behind a more "peakie" motor and is there to help keep it in it's powerband.
    I'll be very interested to see how it plays out.
