Hello,

As my title says I don't drive an srt8; I drive the other performance suv, a tbss. It is a 2008 trialblazer ss, but the main reason I am on here is to learn about your driveline for a project build of awd into a muscle car, my 1968 olds 442. I was originally going to go with a borg warner out of the astro/syclone/typhoons, but was told the adaptive torque cases are the way to go. The Nv146 was the way to go from what I am told as I want to mount it behind a t-56 with a vette rear flange. I am planning on learning about the T-case a lot, and I have already found that builder bill is well respected in his components.

Holy electronics integration Batman! Sounds cool. How do you plan on activating the motor on the transfer case? Our transfer cases deliver 90% rwd, 10% fwd......but when the rear tires spin, it can deliver up to 60% rwd, and 40% fwd.

why don't use the one from a awd tbss? you'll keep it all gm, and also bulletproof.

I was told that I could use a GM case like the tahoe has, but with the internals from an srt8 to create a nv146 with GM flanges.

For the wheel spin, I am sure a sensor could be used on the axle side shafts or the ABS sensor on the Corvette rear hubs I plan to run on every corner could probably give that information. I have talked with someone on pro-touring.com who told me about this route.

As to using the trailblazer parts, I think my normal split is F33/R66 with the range from f25/r75 to f45/r55. This is different than your units. It is also a torsen unit which I am not sure how it works, yet I hear it is capable of 750 hp. I don't have big hp numbers at the build time, probably base line ls2 or ls3. And build up from there as time goes on, all while sorting out the chassis.
