    New (used) 200 and converter install question

    Gents (and ladies if out there), picked up used units as above and checked the Regal Chilton's book...everything seems straight forward except the part about marking locations on TC and Trans...obviously can't do this since these weren't marked prior to removal originally, so how important is...

    Trans won't shift out of first

    Trans was slipping some of the shifts recently and while I've been looking for another trans it now won't shift out of first at all. Really haven't done much in terms of troubleshooting it yet, been just too busy, but I will say the trans fluid definitely smells burnt and is a bit of a dark...

    Tranny Slipping

    OK...first this is the only auto I've ever owned and its new to me so I have no practical experience with auto trannys. With that said, I went out for a drive the other day (no mods done to the car) and noticed in 3rd it would drive off, then start slipping. Thought it was just 3rd, but that...

    Maximum Boost

    No, this isn't a question but more of a suggestion. I see a lot of questions on here regarding what happens if? Small Turbo, Big Turbo, Lag, Spool....on and on.
