Regarding the Graziano-based system HCF offers - that uses the factory synchronized gears and doesn't suffer the...
Our sequential conversion to the Graziano will work with the GM ECU and won’t have any fitment issues.
Delivering the first couple conversions to customers in the next couple weeks - hope they will be up and running shortly afterward!
Video of the final product, tested and programmed, below! My hope is we'll see customer installs sometime in Q1 and the kit in widespread use soon thereafter.
Anticipating varied end uses, we paired the base tune for the kit to 4 different clutches:
- HCF Kevlar clutch/flywheel - for street...
