Got the truck back!!!

A bill of $2,238.95 for everything. I got 150 off for some online cupon thing...pretty cool.

I'm happy as hell. Truck shifts perfectly.



I must say, something was definetly wrong with my tranny before I sunk it. The guy said it, but I didn't think he was serious. Coming off stoplights is soooo much different. It takes 1/2 the gas to pull off a light compared to before.

The transgo shift kit is awesome too. I get a nice solid 1/2 shift and a nice 2/3, after that, you can't feel anything though. Tranny ran at 165* the whole time I drove, perfect.

Transmission doctor gets an A+ in my book. I have to bring it back for a checkup in 2 weeks.

BTW, for Andy, if you read this...I got some aftermarket parts I can't even pronounce. I replaced the following:

Torque Converter
Pump Bushing
Filter
Input Speed Sensor
EPC Selenoid
Shift Solenoids
Overdrive Band
Intermediate Band
Intermediate Servo
Overdrive Servo
Low Sprag Assembly
Fluid (duh)
Shift Kit

Difference is crazy. Now I'm about to go to home depot to get the vent extensions
