from 94 to around 10-2000n have forged rods. And the scoop is PMR's suck!

For a transmission I recommend John Wood. John Wood Automotive - Home
He has a custom billet torque convertor, tripple disc, that is bar none the best out there.

good to know, thanks for all the info. how would would I know if my tranny is bad? 1st to 2nd and 2nd to 3rd are pretty hard, other than that it seems like nothing is slipping but I'm not sure. I used to think the tranny was slipping cus it would feel like it when i romp on it even at about 25-30 mph, but one day the black smoke cleared and i still saw smoke, only it was white and was followed by a loud screeching noise leaving streeks on the blacktop
