    just to update, i'm having my last tranny(the one replaced by my now grenaded tranny) rebuilt with corvette internals...so hello shift kit, beefed up clutches, and upgrades oh plenty...for 800 bucks...and i'm doing the labor myself, so hello new tranny...grenaded tranny will be junked and given a well deserved boot, i will be installing an upgrade tranny cooler, and the tranny temp gauge with this new corvette tranny...wish me luck...oh and dexron VI or royal purple synthetic? what should i use?
