Those intermittent problems are a PITA!!!

We chased a high RPM miss in my buddy's altered for a whole year. We replaced everything, tried to swap in known good parts etc. It just went away, we never knew what fixed it!!

Mike,
Make sure when you tie the car on the trailer you don't bottom the suspension, it can stick if you do. You can use a block of wood as a limiter.

After getting my 6al issues corrected I worked about a week getting a new shifter installed along with wiring in my trans brake .Well it doesn't work I have been on the phone trying to troubleshoot it .Yesterday the builder says ship it back to him .I thought this would be a somewhat simple installation .NOT.Good luck Mike !
