    1G Calling Auto Trans guys

    Just curious if you ever pulled the codes to see why it was in limp mode, it's a hundred times easier than troubleshooting an efi system and the wiring despite looking daunting, is very simple and limited to just a few sensors

    1G Flaring in shifts with shift kit

    Ok I just converted to auto, at first while worrying the TCU and everything it seemed as if the trans was shifting very firm when the TCU was controlling things, but since I got confident that all was well, turned the boost up and started laying into the gas pedal, it seems like it's slipping...

    1G 1g lock up converter or not? ?

    I thought the DCCVS was responsible for the firmness of shifts? Hence the blue wire mod, or in a simple example when wiring up shifting via the kiggly mod and leaving the blue wire disconnected (one to DCCVS) shifrs are full firm.

    1G Trick to pulling the auto trans?

    I was meaning trans alone , i watched your vids, and looking back i think where i had problems was the converter center nub still being caught on the crank, i didn't even think to reach in there and push it back away from the flex plate/pilot bushing. Detroit, i still plan to get that...

    1G Question about 4 bolt swap

    Awesome, thank you, now i don't have to sweat the possibility of the axle not wanting to come out of the trailing arm or anything, plus that means i can leave a way to roll the donor car eitherup on a trailer or tow it to scrap of no one wants it. Thanks

    1G Trick to pulling the auto trans?

    No, definitely NOT trying to leave the converter in the engine/flex plate. Also i learned a long time ago to remove both the plate and forward/aft sub frame brace. The problem i had was the rotary switch (gear selector switch/arm) hitting the frame rail before i could get the bell housing...

    Are the splines for the able cups the same between 3 and 4 bolt setups? Basically I'm wondering if i need to take the axles out of the rear trailing arms or will the 4 bolt cups slide right onto the ones in my car when i remove the 3 bolt cups. I looked at the vfaq but it doesn't mention...

    2G lets talk some transmission, "built" or stock rebuld?

    Take what Donniekak says o heart, it's the truth, unless you get exoic with custom gear sets you're basically buying treated or modified stock parts in any trans build wi some exceptions, what makes tm ld aside from treatments to the gears is how thye are assembled and with how much preload on...

    1G Will a stock converter come off the line decently with this hx40 combo?

    1G Will a stock converter come off the line decently with this hx40 combo?

    the price of bottled gasses not to mention driving at least an hour to get them puts N2o out of the picture for me, so i gutess it's selling parts and saving money untill i can get a spoolinater or a restall

    1G weird smoking issue ONLY after boost, then clears up

    Well, the turbo definitely didn't see over 50psi of oil pressure, I noticed it in the first fee minutes of warm up, and it was dumping tons of oil into the down pipe. I shut it off and inspected and found thekinked return and fixed it. I guess the only thing confusing me is how it only...

    2G sd at what point
