Took the car cover off my 4dr and took her out for a much needed spin around the block, and noticed a very peculiar sound coming from the bottom half of the car on the driver's side. shifted into several other gears and it seems that my 4th gear has decided to crap itself. i am extremely surprised on this considering my money would have been on 2nd or 3rd going out first. but i guess it makes sense considering 4th gear was/is the only gear i don't spin in at WOT, which takes the blunt force of 17psi straight to the face with a higher load.

Anywho, my sedan was in need of some much needed attention anyways (motor mounts, boost solenoid, battery relocation, catch can) just to name a few things on the to-do list. i guess i get to add the new gearset to the list of things needed. i guess this should be my que to get off of my ass and drop the car off to have [email protected] work his magic again.

anyways expect a video of the symptoms and some pictures of my trans soon. but i figured i would give ya'll a update on the car since it's been a while. I am constantly getting youtube hits asking the status of my trans... so here it is! lol keep in mind, this is daily driven 80 miles a day 4-5 days a week... i think if my numbers are right the stock trans lasted about 8-9 months with close to 9000 miles on the kit. that's also on 17psi daily, with no boost by gear making around 440-460whp depending on the temps... and driving the car considerably hard, i'm proud she held up as long as she did!

Ya thats amazing they lasted that long especially with the power your putting down and how long you have had that kit on there.

The infamous 4th gear blowout...lol. It definitely held up well considering it was daily driven hard at that power level.
