verdict : Torrington bearing is on the way out.  Lucky me .. :(
not sure if that is a part type or a company
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Torrington_Company
maybe generic like Xerox for copy.


Dude is pretty old school .. it is likely akin to needle bearings or some such.. I looked up ''torrington'' and found different info. But I do know the tranny is bad.. it is a fact i knew going in so im not doubting their verdict or the call on the tranny bearing toast.. as for that  ''part''.. it is a new term to me ....

So I am assuming that means a rebuild? Any thoughts on looking into Level 10 for upgrades?

I know a person with a different platform. Nissan. They got a level 10 Trans. It turned out to be just a Junkyard trans cleaned up with a "Upgraded" Valve pack. As far as I am concerned. They are a Joke compared to what they once were.

Ford Remanned on the way in ..  I looked into the ''built'' options and I just could not trust them enough. I am done with this platform so this will be the last fix. I hope to get 2 more years with AJP's last tune update + the high flow CATS then I will either set it on fire or trade it in for a Tesla dual motor something on the second hand tesla circuit or a SRT8 that is built from the get-go.

Yeah I am intrigued with a Fast electric. I am sure they are a blast to drive.
