    Looks great! You'll be really happy with it when you're done. House upgrades are fun.

    Throw it back together and run it! My t5z had so much play in the input and gears it was ridiculous. Whined like crazy, but was still driving fine when it came out. I held on to it for a backup.
    Just start saving for a new trans.
