That torque converter has a little magic in it. That'* from the Zilla'* bulletproof trans build last year.

Last pics for the day (unless I take pics of the packages I need to go pick up right now):

I'm officially done under the car with respect to the motor running and the car driving. I'll be back under there again later for some suspension upgrades.

Before you put oil in..take that pan back off and bang out those dents.

Then..paint the subframe!

The dents on the pan aren't anywhere near the oil pickup. And my windage tray is welded in place. Knocking dents out isn't possible.

There are 4 gauges total. Some aren't here yet. 2 replacements, two new. Just picked up a package with some suspension parts from ZiLLA Motorsports East, too.

Now on to a new project. New sender for replacing my old mechanical trans temp sender. This new electrical sender goes with the new gauges.

This is what the new sender replaced. Why the adapters?

The adapters were because of the over-large size of the old mechanical sensor:
