T56 is drained, drive shaft removed, torque arm removed, all electrical disconnected. 4 of the 15mm bolts of the trans to bell are removed.

Still fighting the damned master to slave line. It simply does NOT want to disconnect. Thinking of cutting it. I have a new Tick Master ready to go in anyways with the Monster stage 2....

More updates tomorrow. For now- ROLL TIDE!! SEC BABY!!

I guess if you are capable you can save some cash doing it yourself but it does suck! Best of luck bud.

at least you can pull your trans out without pulling the motor out with it, front bumper, radiator, and engine has to come off with the trans on my 240,

Just installed my new trans this past weekend. How are you trying to disconnect the slave line? I used two flat head screwdrivers and simply pushed in on both sides.

I finally got it off. My "sleeve" around the fitting was actually cracked. Just battling the 10 o'clock and 12 o'clock bellhousing bolts now. Using a pry bar to try to gain some clearance so the socket can actually GET ON the bolt.

Nice looking car, (SS)

follow me on faceboook events, pics and track dates planned for our twin turbo jeep(Prestige Performance LLC). Our friends at hi-end automotive and lethal racing were there too and they went to the track Friday and Sunday. Lethal had a camaro with a charger and stock bottom end run a 10.0 and hi end had a CTS-V go 10.6.

We will be taking the jeep soon and will also attend the Baton Rouge cars and coffee in March as well as the Rebellion on the river in May.

Hope to meet some of you! ty JIm

Exciting times guys!! We have our next Cars and Coffee event on Sat. Feb 16th from 8:00 to 11:00 at Texas Roadhouse. Lil Chubs will be there serving breakfast foods and coffee and we will be able to use the facilities at the roadhouse and then they will start serving food at 11:00. Please try to attend as we are expecting a 100+ car turn out for the event!! Last time we had 45-50 cars with just 3 days notice so I think we can do this!
