    So, do you by any chance know if this same tone ring setup could be used to allow the use of the factory Challenger gauge cluster? since I believe it gets the speed input from the ABS module.

    I don't think so but I do think that there's a way around it.

      Wow. Thanks for the kind words. The car is currently in prison at the transmission shop but I think it’s in good hands. Can’t wait to get back at it.

      I asked because a few minutes ago, chatting with a guy doing a 6.1 in a B-body who was SELLING a NAG1. He said he gave up on the NAG and is installing a 4L80E (!) because it's a simpler swap... wow.

        Have you checked with Russell Drake at Sound German? He can probably help you

        Yup. On Facebook. I think we're getting close. I'm trying to be patient. Don't want to blow up the current people involved ... yet.

        I got the car back! Shifts great. 5 shifters, 3 modules and 2 harnesses later.

        I'm having an issue with throttle response. It seems to lag a half a second or so behind. Sometimes no response at all. Amy ideas?

        Man, you are really going through it, first with the shifter and still dealing with the throttle issues! You will be able to open a 3rd gen hemi swap consulting business when you are done. I know there is some tech guru out there who can cure that throttle lag, but not this old man!

          Major update. While the car was at the transmission shop, a customer saw it and made me a great offer to buy the car, unfinished. We made the deal this past weekend. He's been through this thread. I asked him to keep it going.

          Looking for my next project. Going to stay with an Early A-Body and Gen 3 hemi. Peace out.

            You must have been unbelievably frustrated to send the Valiant down the road at this late stage of the build! I feel for you, it must have been a difficult decision at any price. I would have loved to hear the details of the shakedown and cruises yet to come. On the bright side I can't wait to see how you are going to top the details, thought and workmanship that went in to the Valiant on your next project! I hope you share that one with us as well, It's great inspiration for the rest of us.

              Wow! Disappointed for you that you didn't enjoy the finished product after all that nice work, but I'm sure the financial compensation made it worthwhile!
