Paul finished the trans swap. Runs good. All ready for dynoing a car thats got ove 260K on it. Nice piece of metal that came out of the transmission. If i wasnt so damm tired, I would post the pics. Ill do that tomorrow.
What the ****? It's raining. Where'd you get the traction to do that? Are you swapping a trans in the rain? That's hardcore.
No idea how it happened. I was just leaving work at 4pm. Raining out and slippery. Wasn't stomping on the gas at all, don't even think I was in boost or if I was it was under 5 psi. All the sudden a loud banging. Thought I threw a rod. But it went away when the car was stopped and clutch in and engine sounded great. Drove it the mile back to my office with the banging trans. Met up with Disturbed fan to get a trans of mine he was holding on to. Went home and got tools. got back and started around 7:30. Had to drop the diff too because no way were the PPF bolts coming out. Shattered a socket trying. So that added work plus that fact that we were all tired as **** we didn't finish till 1:30am.
What really sucks about this whole thing is I was planning on pulling that trans and motor before dyno day. I have a very low mileage 94 motor and a 99 head ready to drop in along with that spare trans. But I wanted to see how much power I was putting down with 269k miles on the motor so I figured I'd do it after dyno day.

Big warehouse to work in at my office so we were out of the rain.
it almost didn't happen but it was a good time (for most of us).
hopefully someone will post up some of the pics/vids of the day as well. After Paul's done celebrating his B-day I'm sure he'll post the dyno sheets.
btw I got pissed on on my way to arlington afterwards. Oh, and I got lost again....I'm a ******* retard with directions.
I called and left a msg but none of them seemed very computer savvy. I don't know if they can figure that out. Hopefully they will call me back this time which reminds me. When we rolled up at 9am they told me they wish I woulda called before coming down because they don't run the dyno in the wet and they no longer had my number to call and cancel. They said it's too dangerous and they don't want to be laying on the wet floor strapping cars in. After a little whining they let us put the weakest car on to see if grip was gonna be a problem.
