Add the 1.67 tq multiplier from the 2000+ 5th and counter and you have crappy shifts and you cannot take advantage of the tq the twin makes at the front side of the track.

Curious how the Micro blue works out, I didnt have it done to my trans, mostly because it shares same fluid with the clutch. The Micro blue has a film layer on it what will rub off and drop into the oil and suspend. My fear is it would cause clutch slip, maybe a good cleaning before install?

Jcro has it on his trans. He isn't having any slippage issues.

Right on, me personally I would clean it all to get the loose stuff off, its good to have the residue for internal motor parts, as it'll break down and suspend in the oil and act as an addative for the oil. I'm sure it'll be just fine but could also see it causing some slip on the clutch

I didn’t clean my trans before install and the clutch held without issue.

Good deal, mark may clean all the residual off before assembly, typically you would not want tungsten disulfide anywhere near your clutch, so he must be prepping it first. Any rub off onto your finger if you rub on a gear?

I didn’t really check. He didn’t mention it needed to be cleaned so I didn’t give it any thought

How is that? I prefer the term power over tq since they’re related and I want my peak tq as far up in the rpm as I can get. On my quick runs the tach never drops below 6800 rpm. So how would tq affect that when it peaks at 6100ish? I’m running a 1993 tranny with 80k plus miles on it bone stock except an Andrews close ratio 1-2nd
