Got Charlotte back today shes got a recertified tranny in her. They left a quart of gm tranny fluid and a booklet about srta transmitions. I just hope the put the HD transmition in there, but I'll find out soon enough.

Actually the problem started before I did any mods. I took it to the dealer and they replaced a solenoid or something and called it fixed. I knew better and turns out I was right, it just took a few thousand miles for the problem to become un-ignorable.

Good to hear! I'm sure they matched the coding on the transmission, which determines whether or not it'* HD, and how tall the gears are.

it makes a kind of hardly audible whining sound. Like there is an electric motor in there or something, I'm sure thats what all new transmitions sound like. But I don't think I'll be flooring it for at least 400 miles or so to make sure everything is broken in.

I'm new, but doesn't the */C, or a failing alternator make a whining sound?
