Bob,

I have to remember to stay out of Cicero for a while!! Or at least keep my eyes peeled for the blur and the light bending effect of your passing me.

The trans ended up costing about the same as an intense unit. At this time they don't offer a billet input. I was questioning about this and talked to Mike Dye and his views were the same as mine, the stock input costs $60. You can replace alot of those for the cost of the billet piece. Lost the core charge due to metal chunks going through all the hard parts. The first trans they sent looked beautiful, pull my unit and found the trans cases to be different. The GTP case didn't have the casting for the motormount by the firewall. What a bummer. Ended up getting the guts from the new trans put in my old case by Mike. Other than that I love the trans. Especially with the new converter being " a little" looser. Power comes on fast. It just turned 22k miles.

Break one shaft one time, and price the LABOR for getting it replaced with another $60 shaft. Most tranny shops charge more to replace an input shaft than the INTENSE one sells for, and NO ONE has ever broken one of ours.

Different strokes for different folks though...

I know that one day some time soon I will seriously have to consider one of those.

Mike Dye is the man, I'm sure that tranny will last.

Do you have any plans to run it at the track?

Hopefully in a couple of weeks I will get to the track. Some people never break the stock one. Since I can change the shaft myself I don't have to worry about labor costs. Just a little time invested.

I have seen both good talk and bad talk about the intense unit. I experience the same talk about the 4t60-e unit we sell though. I find the driver and there Real use decides the outcome of the tranny experience. I also sell larger rwd transmissions for trucks and they often lie about their HP. LOL I think they think this will make the transmission stronger lol. Of course when the unit breaks they complain. NOS can be another trans destroyer.

Thrasher is a very precise builder and they build a great unit... It is not hard to make a shaft or have one made and I would personally get one whether you make it or buy it.
