    not yet . unfortunately right this moment it's just not in my budget . maybe later on or if I get some good overtime being that the TRANS is one of the last things to go back in . I may freshen it as that is only 275 bucks and a few hours on the bench

    Steel, or one of the stock aluminum ones? That was my biggest pet peeve with the T5. I went through three of them.

    It's nothing fancy . The gist is I pulled the upper off the other night Nd there is a bit of oil and fuel smell so I am
    thinking the motor is not too healthy .

    My buddy has an x275 car he plays with , his engine builder may build me just a 306 forged pistons with all the machine work etc so we have a stout bottom end with no issue
