I'm going to call the shop today to find out how things are going... Don't have a way to get down there right now... The trans isn't the hold up... It's the research on the turbos... Different ones, bigger ones etc... Still waiting to find out the situation there...

I'll be sure to let you know... If this doesn't work, I have a price on getting my transmission faceplated... I'll have to relearn the driving, but I need to be able to get through the gears or it's all been wasted effort...

Come on, by the time we can coordinate this, it'll probably have substantially higher RWTQ numbers... I've been on the conservative build tune... now with the nine inch going in and the trans output shaft fix, there is not need to protect those anymore... We may have bigger turbos, and I'll be adding nitrous before lone... We are going to see how far the fuel system will carry us first...:emoticon7:

Thanks! Damn, it's going to be even more of a monster than it already is, lol. Good luck! You'll fall in love with the car all over again with all the new upgrades.

Thanks Bro...

I don't think the front tires will be coming off the ground, at least I hope not...

Hey man, if I don't chat with you before Monday, have a safe rotation! Guess that's what you call it. No swimming this time. Be safe out there!

Meant to post this up day before yesterday... got busy doing other stuff... But here is an update from Corey...

Message body

Turbo's are at precision getting looked at. I think they got there Tuesday. Lee dropped off the trany a couple days ago as well. He said there was obvious damage to the 4th gear parts and the new synchro slider was an updated piece. Should work like a champ. So I'm going to call on the turbo's on monday to see what's up. Other than that, I was going to call you today to see what was up but didn't get a spare second until just now. It's been a couple of long short weeks if you know what I mean.

Good luck in Mexico. Maybe things will be better this time around. :-) Be safe, email often, and we'll see you when you get back.

Corey

It's getting there... slowly but surely... I'll mke the best of working in Mexico... It's already been such a pain in the backside just trying to get ready... It's sad that I can travel half way around the world and work in a muslim country with substantially less hassle....

Here's hoping for a great year for all of us...
