Hey, Thanks for stopping in and feel free to post up any time....

I'm kind of hard headed that way, and believe me there have been some tempting offers to drop one... But no, I'll continue to try to make this work... I've done too much trash talking to swap now anyways... I'ld never hear the end of it...

well, your POS transmission is pulled and waiting on the other one which is supposed to be here this morning. Corey is going to ensure you drive your car before you leave for meheeco. We left the shop about 9 last night.

This loaner came in a box and this trans has never been in a car before... I'm thinking he did something that in my book he shouldn't have done.... I think he bought the damn thing until my built one gets here... and he'll old this one as a shop spare....

I kid, I kid. That would look a bit funny with 2 extra pistons just spinning and slapping everything under the hood.I saw the white and don't think I was supposed to. Very cool they're hooking you up!!

I got this really really reallllyy big blue tool box they will fit in... If you can't figure that out, ask Chris, he'll tell you all about it... as long as it's crap, we can eject it overboard if we are over 50 miles from shore...and those donk wheels are most assuredly crap...
