Transmission shake/shutter

  1. In need of expertise! So the other day I was doing a hard pull from first to second (basically a first through second gear burnout). After letting of, which at first I thought I had blown another head gasket. Got the car home checked the oil coolant etc. and everything looks fine. (Car free revs fine in park/neutral) but when in 1st or reverse it has a shake/shutter through about 3000rpms then cleans out and runs fine. I cannot power brake it now and burn out, which was no problem before. I'm determined it has something to do with the transmission possibly the converter or the transbrake. Also I put the car on jackstands and rolled through 1st,2nd,3rd and feels fine.

    Engine is a 331stroker with trick flow kit, and s trim blower at 12psi
    Transmission is a FB Performane 4stb-e with 3500 stall (basically a AODE with a manual valve body)
  2. Sounds like you may have damaged the converter. Who makes the converter?
  3. Converter was also done by FB Performance
