Air pressure is KEY with MTRs.

I wasn't running stickies sonny and I'm pretty sure I didn't struggle.

Yup on the air pressure. It was noticeable. But everyone got through and had a good time.

Novak motor mounts ordered, electrical pieces ordered for the harness. Looking at ordering the aa 4l60e to 231j kit.

Gonna be starting on this swap real soon.

Gotta put the new torque converter and head studs in the tow pig then onto the Jeep.

I swapped a planetary from a 231c in to my np231j instead of buying the AA kit. I'll buy a tailhousing that will mate the 2 together and then machine it for a vss. Much cheaper this way and you don't have to tear the transmission apart too swap output shafts

Actually I do. My donor was 2wd. So output shaft and tail housing both will need to be purchased regardless.

That makes sense then, it might be worth your money then especially for the 300m shaft the kit comes with

It'll cost more then sourcing pieces and parts to get it together. But I'll have everything I need and I don't have to search and try and find parts pieces.

Spent the day at Bundy Hill, it Was fun. Stayed dry up until the last 20 minutes. Wife got alot of seat time. Today was focused on getting her comfortable with off camber situations. She did great.


She did 99% of the driving.
