That my car has a smoke screen function like in the spy movies.....LOL

Anyways I was heading home from the shop after getting my x-pipe put in. I was on the 60fwy heading west got to an open stretch of road and decided to see what the old bullitt could do.
So I down shifted and punched it. It zipped to 120mph so fast I couldnt believe it...:eek:
Then out of noware I heard BOOM!....:eek:
Look in my rear veiw and saw nothing but white smoke cars that were behind disapeared and started honking cuz they couldnt see.
I let off and started checking my gauges to see if I blew the motor...But everthing checked out ok.
I pulled over and looked under the car I notice something pouring on the back of the engine. So I thought I threw a rod tell I looked closer and realized my car was bleeding.....Yes it was my tranny.
Come to find out I put a nice size crack in the rear housing of the tranny. :lol:
The funny thing was I was happy it wasnt the engine....:smile:

Not good at the mechanical stuff so I am wondering how downshifting caused a crack in the transmission. I am assuming you were downshifting from 5th or 4th to 3rd.

Time for an upgrade, but at least it is a fairly easy one compared to a new engine.

Yep, blown up and broken parts are just excusses for mods! Nice work!

That sucks but now you have an excuse to get a TKO600. You didn't shift hard into 5th did you? That can put a lot of strain on the trans and engine.

I've heard it's true that a motor will sometimes seem to run 'better than ever', right before something breaks. Maybe that applies to trannys too.

I think that's like seeing our life flash before our eyes before we die. :lol:

I downshifted from 5th to 4th.

Also sorry I could upgrade the tranny didnt have the money so I bought rebuilt one from a Mach 1. Only cost me $800. But I am saving for a T56.
