Ha thanks for the compliments/gay jokes guys Razz

Yeah, would like to get a nice tranny in there, with a nice edge converter...this mod shit never ends. Doh!

Jim, those your headlights? How much do those go for? I certainly do like them.

About $65 each for the lights. I got them from Amazon. Every once in a while they have a special and give you a $30 credit if you sign up for their credit card and spend $100. I got one and so did my wife.

I made a bracket that mounts about 1/2" behind the stock assembly.



If I were you I'd get some Vette wheels. Smile

I would get a yank if I could find a nice used unit. Other than that, too much money for me. I'm trying to stay "budget"

I didn't see where they said edge was bad? Do you think the quality of Edge is just as bad as TCI? If so, then I just might spend the extra couple hundred to do things right.


Could I get a used yank such as this, get it cleaned and restalled, and put it in my car?

my Edge cost $90 just to ship back and forth, if you have to put $200 into it I would just get a new one.
I got a new 3200 yank last year for $725 shipped That I don't dare use yet until I have my trans gone thru
because of all the brass I'm seeing in my filter

This is true, I also know for a fact that Yank is more efficient in the top end than Yank. so it would not surprise me to see a clutch from a cavalier in there.

So you think I should buy new one instead of buying used and getting cut, clean, and restalled?

This is what my "Edge" did to my flywheel. Oh did I mention my level III IS FAILING!



I did not think my edge was that "cheap" , thinking a lot differently now.

stock flexplates do crack but I did notice mine has a slight wobble, do you have any brass showing in your
fluid ? the only brass in a transmission is in the converters.my Edge has killed 3 transmissions,did Shane tell you he does not like them?

I did tell him, and he did not inform me of the Edge being a cheap converter. I know now!
