So hows it drive? Pretty sweet. The vibe I when the IMA kicks in has been reduced. I can actually drive uphill now from a stand still. Both forwards and backwards. I can almost shift into 2nd normally. Good call on that ttoyoda! My old clutch was totally shot, the springs were worn down both physically and springy. You could actually compress them a fair amount by hand. So net result I can drive it almost normally. 2nd grinds very briefly, before you could barely get it in, now its almost normal. I think I'll give the Penzoil a shot and see if that helps if the MTL I'm running now doesn't do any good.

If I need to rebuild it, I'm more in favor of spending 12 bucks for a new syncro ring than $800 on a new trans.
