Thanks for all the suggestions guys. I appreciate it!

This past weekend, I got the transmission case removed from the bellhousing. I got a bunch of shots of the case. Creating the water jacket around this will be interesting. I don't want to make it in a million pieces, but I don't want to largely increase my coolant capacity either. I'll have to try to find a happy medium. It is also going to need a very good cleaning and sand down job to make sure things bond properly.

I gave the aluminum brazing a shot with the aluminum oil pan on my sister's Jetta TDI. I replaced the engine last year, and am parting out the engine right now. It seems to work pretty nice. Doing it around the diameter of the transmission housing will definitely be in interesting though. Once that stuff turns to liquid, it definitely runs.

I think that was just the ice-breaker :-) me thinks there is going to be more aluminium projects to come.

Welding aluminum is a *****. And magnesium is a ***** to weld as well (looking at you, insight oil pan).
