Pretty Impressed

well the stock transmission held up a lot longer than I would have guessed considering the tuning, egr delete, studs, and other stuff. Developed a good vibration at 75 two days ago and knew what it was the moment it started. I put a new billet TC in Nov and figured i was not far from rebuilding the tranny. After 165K miles of turning 38's on 24's and 35's on 22x14's while having it tuned the tranny gave way. Good news is, now I can rebuild with all the good stuff to match the TC and add the under hood items Ive been waiting for. All parts are ordered and going up on the rack Monday AM.. Cant wait to have her back as the Wife's SS Trailblazer has power, just not the kind I am used to lol....

maybe its just me, but I would be hesitant about putting that TC back in the truck after loosing a tranny. It will probably work for awhile, but not sure how long considering all of the particles that are in the fluid.

My tranny guy would smack me upside the head if I put a used TC in a fresh tranny. He is 65 years old and has been building drag car trannys for 40 years. He has built my last 3 trannys so I figure he knows what he is talking about.

BTW, that "Elite Diesel Rebuild Kit" uses all Raybestos parts. It says so in the description. I would look those parts up on rockauto.com or somewhere similar and see how much those parts really cost. Raybestos is decent stuff, but should be much cheaper than OEM. Just throwin that out there.

It looks like all Elite did was package all the parts together, put their name on it, and jacked the price. Just tryin to help..

First off the TC is fine. No more particles in the fluid than when I changed it at 50k and 100k. Just to clear things up my transmission never went out. The truck was still drivable. I had a vibration develope that was only in OD. My temp stayed the same and never got hot. The only thing in the fluid was the clutch particles that you normally would see. I'm not ordering from Rudy's just using the same stuff that was on the site. The rebuild with parts is going to cost me 3k to 3500. The guy I'm using has been in the business for 20+ years and has built some bad *** cars/trucks so I trust him when he says my TC is good. If it goes out. I'll put another one in then. It's just money right? Lol
