Master rebuild kit, Kickdown band, and Kiggly 5-friction front clutch are on the way. I will probly get the center diff welded and remove VC while I'm in there. Does anyone know where I can get shot peening done for the gears?

Is that the local shop you were thinking about going with? I have also heard good things about midwest performance converters. I am really just hopeing to find a deal on a used one though.

Re: Carl's 98 auto AWD project Black Magic

Master rebuild kit and Kiggly 5-friction front clutch showed up this week. I am planning on getting some work done on the transmission this week since I'm not working. I am still looking for a restalled 2g torque converter.

Re: Carl's 98 auto AWD project Black Magic

I did some work on the transmission today. I got all the clutch packs replaced and installed new seals on everything. I also found a broken seal on the front clutch apply piston. and a the Kickdown band was broken. Hopefully I have found all the issues and the cause of the burnt out front clutch pack.

Re: Carl's 98 auto AWD project Black Magic

So far so good, it's weird because it feels tighter driving around town,but looser on the highway.
Either way I'm liking it, I did try to stall it once and it worked really good compared to stock, I'm hoping to tune the launch this weekend.

Re: Carl's 98 auto AWD project Black Magic

The transmission is mostly back together I'm just waiting on getting my center diff welded. I was on the fence about welding the center diff because I want to keep the car as "streetable" as posable. But after opening up the ceter diff and inspecting it I am definitly welding it. the gears shims and shafts all show sighns of wear so I think it was just a matter of time till it failed.

I also got my Evo 3 intake manifold and Ebay S90 throttle body installed. hopefully everything will be ready to put the motor/trans back in next weekend.
