    Nice progress. Props on ripping open the tranny. While you have it open, thinking of using the upgraded 'blue' clutch packs? Aslo I recently bumped into TransGo-- looks like they have a shift kit for dirt cheap, a comprehenssive "VB upgrade" that IMO is done right (not using shims or solid rods, but stiffer springs and drilling holes in the right places).
