Yeah i know and ya know i didnt not believe you,i am fine with it and thus far i am learning a great deal.My car has 150k on it it was gonna happen.i love this car and this and similar drivetrains in general as well.i may keep this car forever i am checking out the trans link to TEP aswell as info on this where ever i can find it.have you heard of the65 t-raptor.they want 2534.00 for a built trans and except for the price it looks and sounds great? I realy think somethings is sticking in the accumalator or the PCS is over heating.I think i may look for a 200.00 car to get threw winter so i can pull the trans and do the body work.are there any sites dedicated to selling winter beaters for a couple hundred bucks?

I just found a buick Lesaber for 350.00 i dont know what year or the condition of it but who cares.im pretty sure they all came with 3800's so ill drive that till i get the new trans and like i said i got alot of body work to do and the car being down will give me that time.i am still hopeing to have the money to buy the 65 t-raptor.
