Does that mean you don't have a tranny for sale.

Was it a big bang, little bang or poo tang

I still have that other tranny.

It was a bang then a clatter. I have a video, but you can't hear the sound too well. You can hear some choice words though.

Here's the video of the breakage.

Pulled the car in the garage tonight.



Saw this on the inside: Sound deadener from the access hole cover was broken off and sitting on the package shelf area. Hard to see in the pic, but the metal is pushed up from the underside.



Broken nose cone where it bolts to the front mount.



Pulled the motor.



Tomorrow I will pull the tranny.

In addition to the broken nosecone, there was a heavy leak from the side cover of the tranny.

Chad from Immense Performance will be getting it on Sunday, and should have it done on Tuesday. He's going to replace the nose cone, and go through the gearbox looking for damage.
