    I'm all good--did a Magnum XL swap around Thanksgiving last year; CaptD already has an MXL as well.

    Sorry to bring this back, but I am curious if the Magnum is ultimately the better choice for mixed street/track work in the S197 or if new solutions are possible with the 3160 trans? I don’t mind addressing a few weaknesses in the 3160 for a lighter option but also don’t want to waste time if others with more experience/knowledge have already found that it’s not worth the hassle.

    Not sure but the 3160 worked well in the GT350 and FP is using it in the 350S. One nice feature is the built-in oil pump.

    I will reach out to Puff to see how his install went and what, if any, advice he may have. Any other members with this swap?
