Ben.. I'd love to think that torque management is pulling timing on me at 2% throttle coasting down the highway. Just don't know how that'* possible. If I had KR while spinning tires or even at 25% throttle to increase speed, maybe.

Literally if I'm on the throttle say 10% or more there is no sign of the KR. Most of the time there is none at low speed or cruising. It has only been seen coasting/constant speed or a little upon gently roll from a stop. It hits and decays quickly with no obvious sound or feeling in the car.

My trani is still strong and has never even burped. Maybe you damaged yours running that flexplate out of phase.

I agree that pullying up doesn't make sense since the KR is happening at only about 2 psi of boost for me.

The only difference for me is I have to get into the throttle about 30%. Must be due to you having so much more flow with your cammed intake.

I just realized that this is the almost brand new BC Trani that could be fried.

My trani takes about 30 minutes to rise in temp to match my coolant temp of 160 F with 45 F outside temp.

When I used to run a 180 stat, the trani would rise to 180 F. At WCBF in 90 F outside temps, it would rise to 200 F

Car was only 1/2 mile away from home. Got home mostly under Pat and Matt power. They push well..lol.

I don't think anything was harmed by the flywheel experience. I had felt a couple things before that I passed off as bumps or etc before the motor ordeal. Also..the with the flywheel off..I only ran maybe 2 minutes max.

This is unreal.

Have you tooled it to see if any of the solenoids are working? Perhaps the added vibration fooked one. Or the vibration you had earlier brought an early death to your torque converter.

Maybe Pat left you one of his White Curse gremlins. By chance, you aren't runnin' anything on your car that came from a white one, are ya?

Even though Intense isn't open on weekends, I'm already receiving support. I ever mention that they are a great company to work with? They are very supportive, understanding and willing to help. Same with Ed Morad.

I should move closer..lol

Going to do what I can soon. Watching the parents pooch today, and I'll get the pan dropped. Nice thing is I picked up a new rubbermaid container last night. (Walmart employee'*....we gotta talk about containers and lids..lol)

At this point, there'* nothing definitive...it sounds like converter though.
