      Still within warranty by just days. It's actually a good thing it threw in the towel when it did.

      truth...

      PS. the beast lives! and man does it feel good. This trans has a nice tall 1-3 and it makes quite a bit of difference

      yeah, the first one was kind of crunchy to start, then the flywheel issues and side loading the input shaft didn't help its life either.

      How are you getting taller gears if it's still o2j? 2.0 vs 1.8t?

      the final drive and gearing is different depending on how early/or late it is. mine is an early 2.0 trans

      Sounds great! Judging by how much the passenger seat was moving, looks like it pulls like a mother!
