have you done this on more than one car, I mean is there a good track record? I recently had mine rebuilt with all the good stuff and I'd like it to survive as long as possible
nosechunks said:so when u were running 1.1 bar it was slipping? what did they rebuild it with? with 5/8ths of a shim does it cherp second and third? and what did you do with the cable? did u lock it wide open or are u just running it stock spec?Yes, it definately was slipping (note that this was BEFORE this mod), it was rebuilt w/blue rabestos (so they said, I have my doubts), with an extra 1-2 clutch. I burnt it so bad on a 1-2 shift I could smell clutch pack. It sure seems ok now tho, I need to flush it again.
Yes, chirp is a polite way to put it. It bangs REALLY hard, so hard I'm a little worried about the rest of the drivetrain. Also, I think that 5/8" is about all you can go, it gets hard to put back together and is probably the equivalent of no accumulator at all.
Yes, cable is locked wide open. IMO you must lock it all the way open, I think the only reason Toyota didn't is that you can actually hear the fluid flowing at idle. It's the only thing that keeps your pressure really high at low rpm.
You need to drop the rear of the tranny down quite a bit, then put about 4 feet of extensions together, piece of cake then.MKIII87Turbo said:I still haven't gotten the tranny in yet. Will probably try this weekend. After 3 hours trying to get the top bolts out, I gave up. Going to take the tranny crossmember off and drop the rear down and see if I can get to the top bolts better.
