      Hey Navy, I'm Brian and I'm new to the site. I was browsing the forums trying to find some answers to a problem I'm having but I haven't had a lot of luck. So I was wondering if I could pick your brain with this problem I'm having. You can either Email me @ or text me (425)-750-6749 and I'll explain whats going on. Thanks, hope to hear from you.

      Sorry that you could not find a buyer. I was in a similar situation back when I was a quite a bit younger. Well, now you know that I am not here just for my good looks. :)

      Hey, thanks for that info on the repoing process. I'm just cutting my losses and letting it get repoed at this point. Thanks again!

      Well, it looks to be a fairly decent and complete kit. For that price, it has to be off-shore from China though. Buying from that vendor will afford you the limited-lifetime warranty as they are an Authorized Dealer. I could see myself buying this for my DD tC.

      Does your steering feel any different? Reservoir remaining full? If you dropped your front k-member to pull the trans out from under the car, you will have to have a new 4-wheel alignment. This is a must. If you pulled the trans from the top, then that is not an issue. PM me with the details.

      I have about 100 miles left to finish off the first 500 miles on the new clutch, but when i changed it out, something didn't tightened enough and is making a noise every time i start or stop or turn my wheel, any ideas what could be loose?
    11. navylife59
      Sweet! Have you had time to break in that clutch yet? Good to see you back on here. Give us an update on your Members Rides thread.
    12. Nathanr.6168
      Het man long time no see, I finally got the balls to do my clutch swap. I put in a clutchmasters stage 1 and a light weight flywheel but now my clutch won't engage correctly. It feels like the car tries to move in first and second with the clutch peddle all the way down and wont even go into third or higher. Any ideas?Edit: Never mind, the clutch peddle needed to be adjusted, got it working great now!

      I'll put it on my calendar. Thanks

      Which post is that?
    16. TC3
      Could you help me with my recent post? I was told you were the right guy to ask. Thank you.
    17. navylife59
      What it will all boil down to though is the physical strength of the internals; mainly the input shaft, front pump, torque converter, and the 1st gear clutch packs. An experienced performance tranny shop might be able to rework the valve body to shift better but you have to keep in mind that the trans is computer controlled. A trans swap can be done, but will involve alot of cost in parts.
    18. navylife59
      What your transmission can hold up to is a mater of Torque and not HP. Torque is a twisting action. From this twisting action do we derive power (HP) to make work (energy). For example, my car was making 228.4WHP but only 196FtLbs TQ Now it is making 217WHP and 214FtLbs TQ. The car accelerates much harder with the 2nd configuration. You can get a turbo kit and have your tuner set it up in a manner that limits or flattens the Torque curve to help your trans survive. You will need to add a large air to liquid cooler to route your tranny fluid thru instead of the radiator. If you live in a cold climate, you will have to let the car warm up a few minutes longer. You need to run a high quality synthetic trans fluid that can handle the excess heat that will be generated in the fluid. This will help you clutch packs last longer and keep your torque converter from sludging up. The torque converter can be rebuilt to stall at a higher RPM for harder launches.

      In Most cases? What? I am the all knowing, all powerful Tech Moderator. Bow down to my large bulbous brain..........wait a tic...... this ain't that other forum. :) :confused: Kidding aside, thanks for the complement.

      Hey navy, I've been reading a bunch of threads and your input on the topics. That said, you seem to know what you're talking about in most cases. I have an '08 with an auto trans. I want to know what my options are as far as turbo kits go. From what I gather the most my trans can handle is about 250hp.... And there aren't any trans upgrade options, other than a manual swap... witch I'm not completely opposed to if that turned out to be the safest route. Looks like I'll have a budget of $4-5g that I may or may not want to dump into her. Tell me what you think. Im not looking to race... Get there quick, yes. Show the size of my member.. sure. Turn heads, most definitely. I'm working with an AEM short ram intake, Borla cat back and she's lowered a bit.
