Time for an update I guess, it's been 6 long months
Shortly after installing my L&M transmission, I lost the OD frictions
(threw code for incorrect gear ratio 4th gear)
Mike couldn't get me his custom trans tuning quick enough due to scheduling conflicts with HHP.
We thought it would be okay to drive for at least a month without tuning,
...but without a quick learn and a new 3000 stall ATS TC, I burnt the OD frictions within two weeks.
Not enough line pressure in the standard tuning to hold the discs from spinning and burning up I guess.
Mike sent me replacements and will step me through the procedures,
But I decided to just park it for the Winter, now that Spring is near it's time to get ready for track season again (opens end of April)
He also sent me a whole set of like-new frictions from one of his cores for my dead stock transmission
...all on his dime, So I'm going to try and use that one as a practice trans.
L&M Over Drive = 12 Alto Red Eagle double sided frictions
I found an awesome teardown vid on YouTube:
Also grabbed one of these off ebay:
If all goes well with the stocker
MY buddy Brad (MGRAM-10) and I will drop the L&M trans from my truck the following weekend
swap the new OD frictions in then re-install, along with my new Long Tube Headers.
Since I have to pull the exhaust (again) to get the trans out,
I figured I may as well upgrade my crappy JBA shorty headers
... and performance sucking stock cats with these...
JBA Long Tubes !!! 1=7/8" Primaries and no Cat's for better Flow
Thanks to Matt from Moes' performance....$719
(less than $80 more than JBA shorty headers)
