It's funny you mention them because I know them VERY well. I grew up in Sun Valley and if you look at my pic with the new rebuilt blue TQ, they did it for me
LOL, what are the odds, of all the tranny shops in the whole country we use the same one. I think they are the best, especially for these Mitsubishi trannies.
Pretty much if I was going to have any Automatic or high performance stuff done there, I'd take it to him. But what's funny is that when I asked him about my KM145 issues, he really did not know about the 5th gear problems.
Yeah I had to fill Brad in on this issue, but the reality is, the cause of this problem is due to overtightening. Brad never has this issue because he knows how to rebuild a tranny the right way the first time without overtightening it. But he said it make sense that the 5th gear and reverse are seizing together.
Hey if you ever plan on upgrading your rear driveshaft, I have a brand new custom slip yoke with a 1310 connection which will add alot of strength over stock U-joint. It's in the classifieds section , but I will cut you a better deal. I think it would be a great upgrade with all that power you're pushin' and you would not have any issues with leaking oil out the rear seal.
