Default Hmmm.... what was that????

Oh, yeah, a perfectly crisp 1-2 shift.


AND THEN.............................................. .................................................. .......














































































































........... A PERFECTLY SMOOTH 2-3 upshift, yet to take it up to OD speeds.

SOOOO HAPPY.. the new (to me) 38k trans is in and works like a champ.
My dad picked the SSEi up from the shop and drove it back to town tonight, but I only drove it across town. Shifts are perfect.... oooh sooooo sweet. Just wish I hadn't waited so long to order the Transgo shift kit -ordered it Friday, so it won't get here until Wednesday. Would have told the shop to wait with the install, but they already had the trans out and my car was on the only hoist.
Now I have to focus on the alignment and a new DP. :( As well as some tires and getting the correct AC condensor installed.

Haven't tried.... have the 3.4" pulley on with no FWI/CAI.... just a gutted air box and front PEM, ported TB, LIM and SC, and 3" resonator and piping after the stock DP and cat.
Not to mention I don't want to get on it again until the Transgo shift kit is in and the stock SC, SC pulley and TB are on it. Also have to get a new down-pipe as the stock DP has a broken flex pipe so I am getting massive KR atm -so much as just feathering the pedal causes the PCM to pull timing to where the car bogs.
So basically, until I have only the following mods I will not get on it again:

Transgo shift kit
3" DP
3" HF cat (going in with the dp as the stock cat is rattling)
front ceramic coated PEM
gutted air box
180* t-stat


Bottom line.... this is going to be a very lightly modded when I sell it, but the mods will be more for economy than for power. All on a 2000 L67 drivetrain with under 44k miles (42,xxx miles on the engine and 38,xxx miles on the trans currently)
