::The Inevitable Happened Today::Smoked My Transmission::

Like the title stated I smoked the clutches in my transmission today. I knew I was on borrowed time and probably shouldn't have ran it so hard today but hey chit happens right . She is still driving for now but I have to baby the chit out of her.


So with that said this thread should be about what trans components to get, converter, clutch packs, solenoids, shift kit, input/intermediate/output shafts all of it. I'm really leaning towards having Andy Warren do it since they are less than 2 hours from here.

And GO!!!

I went with the PI Stallion converter and 1600rpm stall. I can't really tell much difference off idle but once it hits 2k or so it for sure pulls harder than the stock converter did at that rpm. I also can't say for certain but it appears to have helped a little in mpg but its hard for me to tell since I drive like a 16 year old in his dads Z06.

I went with an RCD billet converter which is made by PI. The trans is an elite stage 4, everything billet, input shaft, intermediate, overdrive planetary, and low reverse hub. I also got their comp kit that has machined parts to allow for extra clutches (raybestos gpz), a transgo shift kit, all new stock solenoids and a new pump. I rebuilt it myself so I saved on labor and so far it has been running great!

I have Andy warrens comp trans with a dpc converter and it's amazing. It shifts hard and can hold anything I throw at it.
