Blew my 4th gear out recently.. finally broke something in this car haha. Rebuild to take place soon.

Glad to see her still going strong though!!

(your cam installer hehe)
Sorry to hear that Adam, LSD and TC will stop a lot of our problems before they happen. The lighter TC will be easier on the input shaft so its not so prone to break and the LSD will help with the burnouts so you dont shatter the dif. You probably know this but I thought I'd state it for the rest of the crowd.

Scott from INTENSE told me that if they had done the LSD and TC early on the Bonneville would not have had nearly as many tranny problems as it did.

Hahaha thanks for the wishes Rogue Big Jeff will be going nuts in it soon.. clutches, sprags, drive chain, etc.

The LSD will help prevent the one wheel peels for sure.. and those are what destroy the diff for sure. However, don't discount the stock diff too much... you have to do things a certain way to get good burnouts on the open diff.. the sig picture I have is on an open diff.. most of it is technique.

Whisky'* car is a beast.. as mentioned myself and a bud put his cam in.. thing is pretty sweet.. he'* done a lot of work to it.. and he RAN OVER MY FOOT!!!! hahaha the memories

So what is up with all the 4th gear destruction ?
Usually you're not powering into the 3-4 gear change. How can the LSD or TC help with this failure ?
Is it recommended to leave the trani in 3rd gear so it won't go into 4th unless you are cruising, easy on the throttle?
The INTENSE PCM is programmed for the trani to be left in Drive.

You can get a two wheel burnout with any differential if you try hard enough, you just have to apply the right amount of throttle to get both tires to spin. ZZP uses stock differentials in all of their cars. However, if you want to prevent one wheel burnouts invest in the Gen II Intense differential, all 3 of my dads Intense Gen I'* did one wheel burnouts without some work to get it to spin both. His latest Gen I differential is the best of all of them, but he still gets one wheels with that, at the track at least. On the street it does seem to burn both with no problem from what I've seen.

If I remember correctly input and 3rd are driven by the same drum piece in the trans and 2 and 4th are the same. It maybe that second gear got pounded on and weakend 4th.

I'm not a trans expert and just going on what I remember Big Jeff telling me so take it for whats it worth.

I believe that is what the problem is. I know when my tranny went it was my 1st & 3rd gear that went because they are driven by the same gear or whatever. If I could get the car up to 12mph (the slowest it would shift to 2nd), I could drive it just fine. It was just the getting it up to the 12mph so it would be in 2nd gear that was the tough part. So since you usually do most of the beating on 2nd gear in an L67 powered car, it would wear out 4th as well.

No, but I did have a faulty torque convertor. It was a bad TC when we put it in, lasted about a week. Replaced it and all is fine.
