    Lots of $$$ spent in transmission. Powerglide.
    I blew up 4 Allison transmissons one year. 3 were rebuildable. The last one I lost the flexplate which took out the torque convertor AND the front pump, AND P2 planetary.
    A 7200.00 paperweight.
    On a positive note, I did get 9 miles out of it

    Its easy to make hp. Getting it to the ground is another thing altogether.
    Grippy tires, Rank Engine, 72 psi of boost. Something has to give (why oh why can't it be u joints lol)

    After how much it cost to get my transmission fixed on my old car I just assumed that they were made money already. Cool looking job.

    72 psi of boost. Very fitting trans graphics...

    Speaking of graphic.... I tried to google a picture to humoursly illustrate that point....

    Apparently googling "exploding tranny" with safe search OFF = lesson learned.

    I think I might need more than my usual one evening drink to get THAT out of my head and forgotten...

    RESIST. RESIST AT ALL COST. (unless you're into that kind of thing!)

    If you choose to go forth, remeber one thing.

    That which has been seen can not be unseen.
