03 Turbo on the way...

... and I'm about to order the new pedestal.

So yeah, I'm pretty stoked. Going to swap out the VGT Solenoid at the same time, and do my exhaust, (hopefully that down pipe is easier to deal with with the turbo off?)

Valve body for the tranny, finally install my gauges, I'll be ready to start putting down some power.

Hmmm, maybe I won't get one of those then.

I need to do something, anyone got suggestions?

The tranny slips on my 2nd to 3rd shift when I run any file on the programmer. Doesn't do it stock.

No one wanted to give me a decent price for it. Carmax offered $11,500. Had a couple tire kickers offer me $14K, and $15K. Screw that. I'm keeping it. 4 years ago it was a $55K truck.

So now, I have to take out an SBA loan instead.

More debt.

Yay.

get new files. PM me your strategy. Or completely flush the tranny and put a new external in and hope it cleans up any "gunk" around the solenoids.

Yep, going to get the tranny fully serviced. Going to address the tunes too.

Thanks for the thoughts.
