F23 swap in ss

Basically half way into an F23 swap in my hhr ss. Iím using a 4.17 F23 with a team green lsd insert, automatic ss cv shafts, a Saturn vue jackshaft and a custom intermediate shaft or a set of axles from DSS. Iím ordering a clutch masters street/race clutch, tob, 8 bolt flywheel, pressure plate, using a b&m short throw shifter, new ac delco master and slave, clutch lines, pedals and reservoir. Pictures to come. Hopefully going to have it done within a few months

Even with the stock uneven length CV axles torque steer isn't really a problem with properly setup suspension. Personally I would recommend using readily available stock axles and avoid the headache.

Yeah DSS said they could have me a set for $800, thatís what Iíd use if I broke a cv shaft. I heard the oriellys axles get noisy after a summer. Iím on Powell yyz v5ís and Iíd run drag bags at the track. I already had the parts from my auto tranny so I figured I might as well use them if theyíre just going to be wasted or sold anyways

What problems were the speed sensor giving you?

With F23 use new axles from Napa. Around $65 a piece.

What is needed to do the swap? Just blew my trans and thinking of doing this instead of swapping another f35

I believe the trans, axels, mounts. Some also install a limited slip differential in it.
