I post to try and help others each day. My performance build and other items are no less of learning experiences for all.

Ed..you'll need to enroll in AA if you keep drinking for all my issues.

Trans pan is back on, no fluid in the trans. Will be vacuuming the car out and wash it before the tow truck shows up tomorrow. We'll pull the trans dry, it dripped all night.

The fluid that looked good at 10pm in a parking lot and didn't look overly bad once home, became darker red and full of sparkles when in the drain pan.

Will know more tomorrow/Tuesday.

Sorry to hear about this, bud. I've been without a computer all weekend, and I did get your voicemail but haven't had suitable time to call you back. I hope this issue gets handled quickly and efficiently so you can get back on the road! Good job staying positive

Yea, we will get a look at it.

Tim'* initial thought was stater support/converter but it is hard to tell from just pics.

If a lot of the shavings are not magnetic then it is most likely converter related (aluminum is not magnetic) although there is obvious metal stuck to the magnet so i'm sure it may have been a cascading effect.

Thanks again Todd and all fo the Intense folks for the quick response. I'll double check those shavings tonight. Being aluminum may be the reason why that large pile is off to the side and not on the magnet.

Are the chances slim that Bill will have his car for Bonnefest?

At the moment the trans is penciled in for the 15th. This will mean the chances are extremely slim. The best I can figure is if everything falls into place which it won't..lol because Dan is going to drag feet on me a bit. I'll be lucky to have this shipped Wednesday. Depending on what is wrong....I assume best case scenario that it might be back Friday the 18th. If that'* the case..I'd push Dan to get access to the shop Friday night...work through the night if needed and reinstall.

Getting to the track Sat the 19th is "remotely possible" and quite doubltful in my calculations.
