I've looked at sharadon I think is the name transmissions anyone used them? Also if I'm installing a boost gauge and air fuel where are they tapped into?

Sharadon does make an aftermarket transmission and they have one behind a truck making BIG numbers, but they're not known for street reliability; the same can be said for the ATS trans. It's easy to build a trans that will hold power at the track, daily driving is where our problems really come to a head. The MGH trans has been holding up well behind several trucks that are daily drivers, so only time will tell with them. I've had one behind a stock engine for over 4000kms so far and we'll see how it holds up to the forged engine +12psi that I just finished installing.

Boost gauge is installed into a vacuum line unless you install a separate vacuum pump, then you install it onto a barb fitting on your intake manifold. The A/F gauge is just an oxygen sensor installed into the exhaust system before the cat. You should install it after the merge collector.

Boost taps into vacuum line, wide band needs a bung welded to the exhaust
...best place on a 4G is drivers side down pipe just before the cat.

edit: Dammit, Kurtis beat me to it lol

It doesn't


an Aeromotive 340 Stealth pump will solve that for about $170 though,
Mine was just ordered yesterday, My dyno guy wont run my truck until I get one installed

http://aeromotiveinc.com/products-pa...-inlet-inline/

With a Ripp kit on 4G Hemi, my bud picked up 170HP
...went from 320 to 490 whp

It will def go higher with a better fuel pump,
HP was still climbing when we shut her down when it started running out of fuel at the top end after 5500 rpm

I think he was at about 7 PSI,
Still room for a little more once we install our Water/Meth kits.

11142 is the right pump for our application,
according to my tuner, not sure its the same for a 3G Hemi (probably is)
