so i put in my rebuilt tranny yesterday and wanted to go for a drive to test it out.
AND IT SHIFTS GREAT! :bigok:

also thats just the first hundred miles. i'm sure it will be even more smooth after the redline and the syncros breakin.

A340E. Rebuilt last july for too much, blew 3rd out on a highway pull. Being rebuilt w/ the IPT kit. I do not have a light foot, but my supras not that fast. I stretched out the 3rd/4th gear bands w/ a intake, 3inch turbo back and @10 psi...

thats pretty odd that you break it like that.

i have been riding my tranny REAL hard, done multiple WOT dyno pulls for tuning and random foot to the floor fun times at 15-20psi depending on how my IC pipes feel, definately get on it hard, more than twice a week, and its a stock (as far as i know, was from a company that imports jdm transmission, low mileage), running through the stock trans cooler in the radiator... and the car has dynod over 400 untuned on a bad day... maybe i just have a good one out of the batch?

yeah i'm going to be painting the whole car this summer hopefully.


and the pavement here is the shit!!! so many roads with so little traffic. its a car guys dream. oh and on my way down to the river this R1 pull up next to me out of know where. he was in full race gear. i slowed down to about 60mph put her in 3rd and pinned it. hit 4th and pulled up to 120mph. for some reason he was still by my side. i was like wtf. he should be gone. then i hear him drop it down a gear. and that little fucker was GONE. he was pacing me the whole pull then just put me to shame. lol.
