Talking The Return of The TTSaleen

That's right.
After 4.5 years, I called Brad (the guy I sold the car to in June 2014) and I bought it back this past Sunday.
He had only put 1,000 miles on it since buying it from me.

Car looks like I had just dropped it off.
Needs a basic clean up and some quick maintenance like fluid changes, tire pressure adjustments, etc and then it will be ready to terrorize the streets once more.

Ryan









My garage is really TIGHT now! HAHA!

Planning to build a separate detached soon, but made the TTSaleen fit next to my 2003 Cobra and 2003 Mach 1.

Quick update on the TTSaleen.
Took the family to dinner in it on Saturday night.



Then on Sunday, I put on my Bogarts and Hoosier slicks and went to the track.
Got my best times so far under less than ideal conditions.
Car setup -
93 octane
17.5# boost
Only stalls at 3200 on transbrake so it leaves really soft.
1st pass - 1.58 sixty foot time and went a 6.13 @ 121mph. 1/4 mile sensors were not working unfortunately.
2nd pass - 1.47 sixty foot time, but spun badly in 2nd, pedaled it twice went a 6.61 @ only 112mph but still went a 9.98 @ 147mph in the 1/4.
I feel like on the 1st pass it could have gone mid 9's around 150-155mph.


Anyway, it was awesome to be back in my old car and on the track. I never built it to be a track car only a street car. It sure TWISTS up on the launch with only subframe connectors and no rollcage. LOL!!!!

After having broken many, many T-56 transmissions including Viper-spec versions, I decided in 2011 to install a full-manual valve-body 4R70W with a transbrake.
This transmission served me very well for 7 years with a few trips to the track including a handful of 9 second passes.
However in 2018 (upon me buying the car back after a brief 4 year hiatus of selling it), I promptly took it to the track and on the 2nd pass broke it.

It was at this time I decided to not only change the car, but to update it to a more modern transmission that would give me a different gear spread and enable me to go back to an automatic shifting transmission for street-driving and on-track consistency in shifts.
After reading online and trying to find where other folks have done this swap, I didn't find much on the SN95 platform that had been accomplished.
I hope this write-up will help you as I have personally gone through some ups-and-downs searching, figuring, and talking to alot of people to ensure I get this right.

On to the build.

Transmission 6R80 from 2014 Mustang sourced case donor.
Completely built by Brett Lasala of MS Racing in Florida. https://www.msr-nogmparts.com
It has upgraded friction materials, steels, a billet intermediate shaft, the upgraded First-gear one-way clutch and a billet forward planetary.
Here's a great write-up about Brett and his work - https://www.fordnxt.com/tech-stories...s-billet-bits/
Brett is one of the fastest people on the planet using a true 6R80 transmission (6 speed) and his on track performance and consistency led me to contact him to build me a twin to what he runs. He is a really nice guy and answered all my questions and provided me with insight into my plans with the car.

Transmission cooler fittings Requires minimum #8 lines.
This is a really neat item that allows you to adapt AN fittings into the side of the 6R80 transmission, allowing you to run AN lines up to a transmission cooler.
https://pbhperformance.com/shop/pbh-...oler-fittings/

Transmission cooler kit -
Power by the Hour sells a very nice transmission cooler with fan, lines, and fittings. You can build this yourself, or make it easy and get the kit offered by Power by the Hour. The PBH kit contains the correct fittings to install AN adapters and aftermarket lines to your 6R80 and connect to a trans cooler. However you will have to cut the line to fit and install the fittings yourself. My only complaint was a lack of mounting options with the cooler. So I had to improvise and take the bracket off my old cooler and adapt it to fit the new cooler.

Cross-member – Stiffler’s cross-member kit - TCB-6r80-KIT
This is supposed to be a direct bolt-in and for the most part was. Unfortunately the cross-member didn’t quite line up with the bolt hole on my passenger side. I didn’t have enough room in the pre-drilled slot to allow it to pass thru. So I opened this slot up a little more (about ”) and it was able to work fine after that. The kit is really nice and designed to bolt up thru the factory holes right in front of/above my subframe connectors.
http://www.buystifflers.com/1979-200...nstallKit.aspx





Stand-alone 6R80 controller kit – US Shift Quick6 Controller
US Shift makes the Quick 6 shift controller that also enables a transbrake feature. Instructions for wiring are very thorough. I took extra time in wiring this up and making it look neat and clean. I ordered a complete weather-pack connector kit to allow me to make my own connections for ease of connecting/disconnecting in the future. The setup was straight-forward and only needed a few inputs from me such as – tire diameter and rear gear size. Once I got on the road, I had to tweak the setting for the speedometer output so that my reading matched my gps on my phone. I mounted the Quick6 under my radio and ran the wires down and around the shifter area to hide them as much as possible but give me the ability to see the Quick6 display. This allows you to monitor the transmission shifter status, or transmission temperature, or if in manual mode, among other things. Pretty cool stuff.
https://www.usshift.com/usq6.shtml




Transmission Dipstick – Lokar PA68404
I purchased this dipstick which is for a F150 truck with the 6R80. It’s a little longer than the mustang version, but I used it so I could cut it down and fit it to my car and mount it behind the passenger side strut tower. In order to do this, you have to trim the outer tube (braided line) and the inner dipstick to match properly. The factory dipstick is very short and located on the side of the transmission. I wanted a way to add fluid easily from the top of the car and also a way to check it periodically. On my car the exhaust is very close to this area and makes it near impossible to get to the area to fill or check the fluid, which you are supposed to do when it’s hot (at 170*).
https://www.summitracing.com/parts/pma-pa68404




Shifter – Lokar ESS66R80HB
This shifter is compatible with the 6R80 and works with the US Shift Quick 6 controller. I contacted Summit Racing and had them add it to their lineup. I got the newer upgrade which has the Sport mode where you can pull the handle down from DRIVE to S (Sport) which enables the stock Coyote computers to go into Sport mode, something the previous generations of this shifter did not have. I don’t need that option as I will go into DRIVE, push the selector over and then be able to manually control the shifts if desired. However I plan to let the Quick 6 controller do all the work once it’s dialed in properly.
This shifter has a cable that exits the rear of the shifter. This is really different from my Hurst Quarterstick I was using (exited the front) and the cable is a lot shorter. I had to get creative and drill a new hole in my floor to accommodate the shift cable and I had to modify the plate I had previously made to enable the Lokar to fit in place of the Hurst. After a few hours of mods, it fit like a glove.
That was until I tried to install the console. I found there were quite a few places that needed to be trimmed and cut out to allow the shifter cable bracket to clear in addition to the cable to clear. My dremel tool made quick work of this and now the console fits properly.
Next issue was the cup holder assembly. I had the front cup holder modified previously with a transmission temperature gauge installed. Unfortunately, the Lokar shifter cable mount is right in the way so the cup holder had to be cut out of the way. This forced me to move the gauge up out of the way. I took some flat metal (from a sign I had) and trimmed it to fit and mounted the gauge on top of the cup holder. After a few hours of modification, it all fits now and works like it should. Of note, the shifter does have a little play in it that the Hurst did not. In other words, you can move the shift handle slightly before it starts to pull against the shift cable. It’s the inner workings of the shifter and not adjustable from what I see.
https://www.summitracing.com/parts/LOK-ESS66R80HB







Driveshaft -
Because our SN95 cars have a different style of shaft than the 2011-newer mustangs, we need their style of slip-style shafts.
I've heard of guys using 2011-newer manual transmission aftermarket shafts from Ford Racing, DSS, and others, but unfortunately at my power levels these are not going to work.
After a few weeks of delay, I was finally able to get The DriveShaft Shop to make me a chromoly 3.5” shaft.
http://www.driveshaftshop.com




Exhaust modification –
Unfortunately, my custom made 3” x-pipe no longer fit with the wider 6R80 transmission and the Lokar shift cable setup.
The good news was that a local muffler shop was able to fix the problem and remake some sections of my x-pipe to allow the necessary clearance and fitment.
https://www.facebook.com/superkool223/




Overall –
So how do I like it?
So far it is really nice. Shifts are still learning as the controller needs you to drive it around in different throttle applications so it can build its shift tables properly. You can set the rpm at which it shifts at WOT and make other adjustments but the fine tuning comes from actual driving around.
I have driven about 80 miles so far in stop-and-go traffic and some spirited highway driving. So far it’s working very well. I can tell the Quick6 is learning as the shifts are getting smoother. The transbrake feature works very well and the transmission temperature seems to run around 160-180 degrees most of the time.
Being able to drop it into gear and go is actually nice. I thought I would miss the manual shift of the 4R70, but so far I don’t. Plus I can still put this into Sport mode and shift it manually if desired. But this 6R80 is geared so differently that having it shift for you is actually preferred.
I still have to swap out my rear gears from the 3.55’s to something less aggressive and add some much needed chassis stiffening such as a roll cage.
I cannot wait to get it to the race track and see what kind of improvements I can get in my times!

Maybe? I stopped coming here because my antivirus/malware detector kept stating that the site was infected. Not like I missed anything, forums are dying sadly, for some reason people prefer the toxic social media.

Been doing a few updates and upgrades on the car recently.


This included a thermostat to control the transmission cooling fan.





Brake upgrades including stainless lines, new rotors, and Hawk pads.
Also replaced the 8 year old Hankook front tires with new Michelin Pilot front tires (kept same size 215-45-18).







Next I added the splash shields back under the front. Had to do some trimming to clear the hot-side pipes, but it worked out pretty good.






Finally, I purchased some Turbo-Guard inlet screens - their MAXX line and also installed their Carbon-Fiber Black turbo blankets.

Glad to see you're still wrenching Ryan! Car is looking better than ever, can't wait for new track times.

I also quit coming due to antivirus blocks and work shutting the site out.

April 5, 2019 update -


Took off the Aeromotive fuel system that has been on the car since I built it in 2009.
Sumped 98 tank, #12 feed and #8 return lines.
Aeromotive Pro Series pump (replaced new last summer) and regulator.
New filters (summer 2018) both pre and post of the pump.
Black nylon braided lines.
Going to sell this as a complete kit for $850.








Currently switching the car over to a new Cobra (terminator) fuel tank from Glen's performance. Also added the Fore Innovations triple pump setup and fuel hat with PTFE stainless lines (#10 feed and #8 return) and regulator and their fuel pump controller.

This will support the horsepower of the car, allow me to run E85 and only run 1 pump for normal cruising and bring in the other 2 pumps when on boost.








Lastly, I received my Moser 33 spline axles this week with the 9" end conversion and bearings. Got a new Truetrac 33 spline differential coming and a new set of rear gears that will be going into my 98 rearend.
Taking it to Fastlane Motorsports to handle this upgrade soon.
