Dammit to fucking hell!
This is one of those 'timebomb parts' you hear about.
My 03 PI swap car has this TC, so far unused, sitting in it, waiting to kill That Tranny.
By the time I get it running, I'll have a rebuilt tranny ready for it; but 'building something to Die' is NOT my normal MO.
I've had the engine out twice, due to lack of competent help, but I'm not pulling it again to replace a New part I paid a lot for. More than the tranny, lol.
I can't believe darrin hasn't chimed in; he probably hasn't checked in lately.
There's no love lost there, I think.
