    I could see where you would be able to pull it from 5th to 2nd, but that would have had to be a perfect pull for it not to hit the shift gates in between. Generally there isn't any lockout that I know of for the typical gears, only reverse lockout. Hope he learns a nice lesson from all of that

    A mistake does not become an error until one refuses to correct it

    isn't it normally hard to shift into to low a gear, even without a lock-out mechanism....or is that what you are talking about..

    yes its possible and his clutch was what probably exploded...
    Every normal man must be tempted at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.
    I often wonder if the voices in my head ever get frustrated because I'm just too damn lazy to climb that clock tower.

    Most people learn through common sense, others have to learn in a hurry the hard way. Pretty hard to go from 5th to 2nd if you have a slight clue about standard trannys.

    Most of the time the motor will bounce off of the rev limiter, I bet when he had the computer flashed they either raised that or disabled it.

    I've never seen a motor wasted like that outside of the track, I wonder what else was going on inside that motor.

    Now you know some of the cons with cast aluminum... For some reason, I have a feeling that the car was dogged out routinely... Sooner or later, somethings gotta give...

    He must have really slammed it into gear to make that much of a rev change instead of just buzzing the gears.

    A rev limiter doesn't mean a thing if you mechanically force the engine to higher revs.

    Anyway, todays lesson is about turning pistons into golf balls. This is the first step. They aren't round enough so we need to run them through again.

    Actually they were 125 or 130hp. The older Iron Dukes, TB fuel injections like in the early Fiero's, and other common GM small cars like the Grand Ams of the mid to late 80's...were 88hp.

    Any idea how many ponies the stock 4.0 puts out ?

    I can't find a real stats page for anything about the 99 Sport.

    Tires are 205/55-16's stock

    1st 3.267
    2nd 2.130
    3rd 1.517
    4th 1.147
    5th 0.921
    6th 0.738
    Final 4.389

    if my math works out for me that equates to:

    7000RPM in 5th = 206km/h or 128mph

    to hit 206km/h in 4th, you would have an engine spinning at 8706 RPM's

    now second gear on the otherhand...

    16168 RPM

    I believe it's still 190 hp/235 torque stock on this years models...haven't heard of any increases. What's nice is 90% of it's power and torgue are available at such low rpms on this engine...like a tractor!
