None - manufacturer has operations in Houston. Hurricane hit last week and has disrupted everything.

When I have an update I'll share

Re: Graziano Gearing and Drop Gears

Hello all - the gears are all done with the final grind and everyone who placed an order has been contacted.

We had 2 extra sets made, just in case. If anyone else is interested in one of these sets, please reach out to me by the end of the week and I'll extend the $1700 initial price. If we have to inventory them, the price will be $2,000.

If there's any interest in doing another run, I'll get together another several orders and we'll do another run of them. I suspect a 5/6 month lead time after getting the initial orders.
Best,
John - [email protected]

Re: Graziano Gearing and Drop Gears

Do the drop gears work just the same for the V8 version of the Graziano trans?

Hi Jared - yes they do. The gearing files attached are for the V8 version of the box, actually.

Picked up the gears today. They turned out great. I still have 1 available, if anyone's interested.

Best,
John

Re: Graziano Gearing and Drop Gears

Got my gears today, they look great! Thanks for being the guinea pig on that earlier set and for making this new ratio available. I'll hit Brian up for install once I've had a chance to shake down the car (whenever that may be).

Thanks Cam, glad you like them - please let us know when you get them installed.

For others - I got the rest of the gears sent out on Friday. You should see them Monday/Tuesday!

Re: Graziano Gearing and Drop Gears

Installed 5 sets now. I'm expecting the gearbox to be installed in a finished car in the next month or so.

Re: Graziano Gearing and Drop Gears

I've finished 4 SL-C's with the new gears. Engines have been the 525 hp LS, 1200 hp twin turbo LS and 2 LT4's. Also have a LS 525 without the drop gears.
The gearing feels great with shift points feeling very natural.
First gear is now usable without sacrificing the acceleration when needed.
I always thought that the Ricardo transaxle gearing was too high and the Graziano stock gears too low. The new gearing finds a great balance between the two.
